MRNSW operates its ‘Marine Radio Safety Service’ (MRSS), a marine radio safety support network for boat owners the whole NSW Coast. Every day, seven days a week Marine Rescue Central Coast monitors the marine radio frequencies from its radio base at Point Clare covering Brisbane Water and offshore from Norah Head to broken Bay including Terrigal Haven. Membership of the MRSS is available to all individual boat owners for just $35.00 per year. Group membership of MRSS is available to local Fishing Clubs.
During March 2016, two local Fishing Clubs made special contributions to Marine Rescue Central Coast. The President of Ettalong Bowling Club Fishing Club, Cliff Thompson, met with Unit Commander, Roger Palmer and presented a cheque for $1000 to assist with the running costs of the unit’s rescue vessels.
The Bloody Seagulls Fishing Club is affiliated with and meets at The Grange Hotel in Wyoming. The Seagulls have built an extension to the Units outdoor BBQ facilities providing an extended undercover area for the comfort of volunteers and visitors. MR Central Coast welcomes group visits to the Point Clare Base and with prior arrangement, will cater for the visit and provide a tour of the facilities and vessels.
