Marine Rescue NSW is our State’s official volunteer marine rescue service,
committed to our mission of saving lives on the water.
The State’s newest rescue service was established in July 2009 and
officially took to the water on New Year’s Day in 2010, backed by our
volunteers’ decades of experience in three former rescue organisations:
the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association, Royal Volunteer
Coastal Patrol and the NSW Volunteer Rescue Association marine fleet.
Unlike most emergency services, we are not a Government agency but an
independent not-for-profit organisation. We receive generous support
from the NSW Government and the boating community of NSW through a levy
on boat licence and registration fees.
MRNSW has more than 3,000 volunteers in 45 strategically-located units on the NSW coastline and inland on the Alpine Lakes in the Snowy Mountains and the Murray River at Moama.
Our members are our greatest strength. Recognized for their marine
knowledge, courage and community service, they are dedicated to helping
boaters stay safe on NSW waterways.
MRNSW is a Registered Training
Organisation and our members are professionally trained to national
standards for their roles, both on and off the water.
Marine Rescue NSW saves lives on the water through our key services
1. Swift, coordinated 24/7 emergency response
2. The State’s only Log On and vessel tracking service for recreational boaters
3. A marine radio safety net, monitoring traffic along the NSW coastline around the clock
4. Boating safety education, including boat and jet ski licence and marine radio courses for local boaters
