New Marine Rescue base opened
13th November 2020
I'm a very big fan (and an honoured patron) of Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie so I was absolutely thrilled to be part of the official opening of their new search and rescue co-ordination centre at Swansea Heads today.
These men and women are a dedicated group of volunteers who watch over the lake and channel and keep our boaties safe.
They have saved countless lives.
My thanks also to Police and Emergency Services Minister David Elliott who came up to open the new $1.8m centre.
This state-of-the-art centre replaces the smaller and outdated radio tower and is now well-equipped to handle any emergency on the lake.
