  • Volunteers are happy with Marine Rescue Port Macquarie radio base upgrade

The Marine Rescue Port Macquarie revamped radio base and associated upgrades have enhanced safety of the boating community.

Volunteers started using the upgraded radio base at Town Beach in early November.

The building, including the radio base and a kiosk, had a makeover thanks to a Port Macquarie-Hastings Council project.

Marine Rescue Port Macquarie was responsible for the interior radio base fit-out. The group met the fit-out and associated equipment upgrade costs.

The project included cabling and electrical works, plastering, floor coverings, communications and electronics. Some of the electronic work, including a bar camera, is still to be finished.
