Saving lives on the water
MRNSW is an independent not-for-profit organisation that is NSW’s official volunteer marine rescue service, committed to its mission of saving lives on the water. Over 3,000 volunteers provide the boat crews, radio operators and fundraisers that keep the organisation on the water providing a safety net for boaters. Marine Rescue Jervis Bay is located in Huskisson and provides key services of emergency response, log-on and vessel tracking, traffic monitoring and, as a Registered Training Organisation, boating safety education for locals and visitors to Jervis Bay.
MRNSW receives generous support from the state through a levy on boat licence and registration fess, however each unit raises over 50% of running costs through fundraising activities throughout the year. A comprehensive modernisation program is providing volunteers with state of the art vessels, purpose designed and equipped for rescue operations
