Each Marine Rescue NSW unit operates a Radio Club for members of the local boating community – a boat registration and “look-out” service provided by Marine Rescue Port Stephens unit, with applicability across all Marine Rescue NSW bases.
These clubs are a great way for you to show your support for our volunteers and the vital emergency service they provide on NSW waterways.
Your small annual club membership fee makes an important contribution to our volunteer fundraising, which is crucial to Marine Rescue NSW as a not-for-profit community-based service.
By providing information to us on the attached membership application form, we will enter all your details into our computer database. This will provide our Radio Operators with immediate details of who you are, as well as full details of your vessel.
You will be allocated an MRS call sign, for example… MRS123. This number will be unique to you only and is valid while ever you remain a member, even if you change boats.
