We are pleased to announce Marine Rescue NSW as a Gold Sponsor at the 2016 Australian and New Zealand Search and Rescue Conference (ANZSAR).
Marine Rescue NSW (MRNSW) is the state’s official volunteer marine rescue service, committed to our mission of saving lives on the water.
As one of the largest volunteer marine rescue groups in Australasia with 45 units, 3000 active volunteers and 82 rescue vessels providing a 24/7 marine radio and rescue safety net across the coastline and on key inland waterways we are very pleased to have them on board supporting the conference.
MRNSW officially took to the water on January 1 2010, the product of a successful merger of three former rescue organisations: the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association, Royal Volunteer Coastal Patrol and the NSW Volunteer Rescue Association (marine fleet) www.mrnsw.com.au
Mr Dean Storey, Deputy Commissioner of Marine Rescue NSW will be presenting as a forum speaker at the Conference.
Mr Storey will be discussing how we can help keep boaters safer on the water using the Marine Rescue NSW ‘Seahawk’ vessel tracking system and the ‘MarineRescue’ mobile app as a powerful search and rescue tool.
The 2016 Australian and New Zealand Search and Rescue Conference (ANZSAR) will be held at the Jupiters Hotel, Gold Coast on the 1 June 2016.
The 2016 Conference will continue to provide a platform of discussion that began in 2015 for the Search and Rescue Community. ANZSAR aims to tackle the issues and challenges in Search and Rescue and continue the support of professional development in new training, techniques and requirements.
