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.

Last weekend's activities included:
Saturday BIA convoy
escorting boats from Mandurah, Rockingham and Cockburn to Rottnest, a great way for new boat owners to safely do their first trip to Rotto.
On arrival at the island the convoy was taken to many different bays on the island, showing them safe passage in and out.
After an overnight stay and the safe return trip we attended Rockingham foreshore for
The Rockingham Beach Cup.

A big thank you to the guys from Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue for providing the escort from Mandurah to Rotto for the Safety Convoy. Plus an added bonus by taking us around the island and showing us how to get into the various bays. Well done fellas. Hopefully next time we will have a bigger crowd from Mandurah. Thanks Gavin & Michelle. ... See MoreSee Less
