NSW Marine Rescue gets some new kit

NSW Minister for Police and Emergency Services David Elliott welcomed a million-dollar boost for boating safety on the far north coast, with the delivery of a rescue boat and the fit-out of premises for the Marine Rescue Point Dangar unit.

Elliott was joined by MRNSW Commissioner Stacey Tannos, MRNSW Deputy Commissioner Operations Alex Barrell, MRNSW Deputy Commissioner Corporate Services Todd Andrews and Point Dangar volunteers to officially welcome Point Dangar 31, a 12.5-metre Naiad, to the MRNSW fleet.

The Minister also welcomed the announcement of a $200,000 hi-tech fit-out of the Marine Rescue base. The fit-out will see a new antenna, VHF radios and radio equipment, emergency generator and office fittings; creating a space to coordinate emergency communication and response on local waterways.

Built by Yamba Welding & Engineering on the NSW north coast, the Point Dangar 31 is equipped with the latest search and rescue technology including radio direction finder, radar and side scan radar. The vessel also features a full first aid fit-out, including a defibrillator and oxygen kit.
