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.

A despicable act was committed last night(sunday) against Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group and every boatie on our local waters.
Our main rescue vessel Jaimee Lee was broken into and had all its electronic navigation equipment stolen along with all of our crews' PFDs and flare kit.
We have just spent a lot of money ensuring this boat keeps our community safe on the water.
Taken were two Furuno Navnet 12 inch screens, Six blue or black coloured PFDs that are marked RVSRG and our yellow flare container(with flares).
These people have stolen from a Volunteer not-for-profit-organisation that relies heavily on the generosity of our sponsors, supporters and the public.
if you have any information or suspicions regarding this matter, please contact the Police (Crime Stoppers).
Should anyone try to sell you any of these items please report it to the Police immediately.
We are extremely disappointed that Jaimee Lee now has to be taken back out of service.
We will continue our 24/7 on water operations with vessel Cape Peron.

Rockingham Sea Rescue Group is pleased to advise that our our rescue vessel, Jaimee Lee, is back in service following a very necessary $100,000 refit.
This refit has been self funded with support from our sponsors, supporters, public donations and sausage sizzler consumers!
To all who help us continue to provide and promote Marine Safety on our local waters, we thank you!

Today our crews manned both our vessels as well as crews from Cockburns boat "Avail" and VMR vessel "Sardam"
Volunteers from Rockingham, Cockburn and Mandurah had undergone a 2 day Sea Survival course run at our HQ.

The 4 vessels assisted with the lifeboat drill procedures as well as a man overboard incident and this was followed by a flare demonstration on land.

The final day was filmed by Channel Seven's Today Tonight crew for an upcoming documentary that will feature Volunteer Emergency services and will be run on Wednesday nights for the next few weeks starting tonight 18/4.

Well done to all the crews who participated in one form or another and watch out for faces you know when it features
