Welcome to Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group

Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group is located at Point Peron, with its Headquarters housing Cape Peron, Crew Room, Training Centre and the VN6KC Radio Tower. The FSR Jaimee Lee is permanently moored on the jetty adjacent to the public ramps, fuelled and ready to respond at a moment’s notice.

 

Since its conception the Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group’s membership has grown to 450 members of which 65 are “active”, manning the rescue vessels, the radio tower and telephones to provide the boating public of Rockingham and surrounding districts with emergency coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

The duty crew man our rescue vessels and are on standby for a period of 24 hours, with crews rotating over a 7 day period, 365 days per year. We also have administration staff undertaking various duties at our Headquarters, all of which are volunteers and local to Rockingham.

 

Duty Radio Officers commence work at 0600 hours, standing 4 hour radio watches until 2200 hours every day of the week in the summer months (September through to April). An overnight telephone watch is maintained on our Emergency Number 9528 2222. Radio watch hours are reduced in the winter months  (May to August) 0700 hours to 1800 hours , with a telephone watch operating from 1800 to 0600 the following day.

Well we've had a few busy days at sea recue for our team. Thursdays crew were put through their paces with a training exercise conducted by our Operations Officer who was very pleased with the skill level achieved.
On Saturday our boats were kept busy with short and long range recoveries east and west of Garden Island.
This is a great time to remind the public of our "Recreational Boating Radio Course", please contact Rockingham Sea Rescue for course details. Although mobile phones are ok to use as long as they're in range, we like to encorage the public to use the boats radio to contact us.

Finally thanks to our Activity Officer and all the members for their effort at Warnbro Fair.
