Member for Bega Andrew Constance today advised that Emergency services in the Eurobodalla have a new $300,000 rescue vessel to boost safety in the boating community on the NSW South Coast.

Minister for Emergency Services David Elliott today visited the region and met with emergency services volunteers across the Far South Coast.

“At Marine Rescue Batemans Bay Minister Elliott was able to officially handover Batemans 20 to volunteers at Marine Rescue (MR) Batemans Bay.

“Keys to the 7.5m Ocean Cylinder vessel were given to MR Batemans Bay Unit Commander Mick Syrek and unit members at their Hanging Rock base.

“This valuable new asset is a direct investment in the safety of the volunteers and boating community of Batemans Bay and the South Coast of NSW,” Mr Elliott said.

“Batemans 20 is equipped with the latest navigation, search and rescue, communications and first aid equipment.”

Mr Elliott then presented MR Batemans Bay with a $4000 grant for a life-saving defibrillator and an oxygen rescue kit. During his trip he also provided six new Samsung Galaxy Tablets with protective cases for Bega Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) valued at $5000.

These tablets can be used during fire incidents to gather intelligence, map active fire events and relay information across fire grounds.

“Bega RFS will use these tablets on fire grounds for tactical purposes as well as for education and community engagement,” Mr Elliott said.

Travelling up the coast, the Minister was able to visit with volunteers of the Bega and Narooma Volunteer Rescue Squads (VRS) where each were given a defibrillator with a total value of $4000.

Mr Constance said, it has been fantastic having the Minister in the region and I am pleased that he was able to support our local volunteers and emergency services with the new equipment.”
