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.

It seems training never stops when you are with sea rescue units and that can only be a good thing for the boating public.
Last week saw volunteer sea rescue units from Fremantle, Cockburn, Rockingham and Mandurah team up with Police officers from those same districts to undertake another course in marine sea rescue training over a 3 day period.
The course was run by Fremantle and Peel Water Police
So for those of you who wondered what all the boats were doing just off San Remo on Sunday, well now you know.
Sunday was the finale with all the desk top learning being put into practice.
6 Police and VMR vessels undertaking grid pattern searches.
A great course run by some very good trainers and I am sure we all came away from it with a lot more knowledge than we started with.

A proud night for the group last night when several of our trainee members became qualified crew and along with a new skipper, received their epaulettes. This recognises the training, studying and tasks completed by these members.
Well done to all involved.
