Important Message to Mariners
Changes to Radio Roster for the Winter:
We have seen a dramatic decrease in the number of vessels logging on to our radio service. Additionally at this time of the year we experience a big reduction in the number of available radio operators. In order to provide this essential service we will continue to do so, however at a reduced level.
The following new arrangements will take place after the June long weekend.
- Week days will have an operator from 0730 hours until 1210 hours.
- We will continue the weekend roster as previous, from 0730 until 1710 hours;
- After hours coverage will continue i.e. a listening watch and via our phone service (0408 817 359).
These arrangements will take effect after the June long weekend i.e. Tuesday 14th.
Training Opportunities for Members:
We always welcome new members who have an interest in maritime safety. St Helens Marine Rescue is a member of the Tasmanian Volunteer Marine Rescue organisation. This enables us to provide a suite of training opportunities including First Aid, VHF Radio Licencing, Vessel Crewing, ESS (Elements of Shipboard Safety), Senior Crew and Coxswain Certification.
