New boat for Marine Rescue
The Marine Rescue service at Point Clare has commissioned a new rescue boat for the Brisbane Water on February 2.
Central Coast 21 is a 7.5 metre vessel that can respond to emergencies on Brisbane Water and up to 15 nautical miles offshore.
Marine Rescue NSW Commissioner Stacey Tannos said the Hunter-Central Coast region had been one of the state's busiest in terms of marine rescues this summer.
"Central Coast rescue crews responded to 50 incidents in the past two months, including nine life-threatening emergencies," Commissioner Tannos said.
"Thanks to the ongoing support of the State Government, we've been able to ensure our volunteers have modern, reliable and safe rescue vessels to assist the region's large boating community in times of trouble."
