  • Marine Rescue NSW: volunteers who are the heart of the sea
  • January 09, 2017
It's 9am on a summer's day and the team at Marine Rescue NSW are preparing for the morning patrol.

Life jackets and sunscreen at the ready, they board the Middle Harbour 30 (MH30) in Middle Harbour.

The four volunteers are geared up and ready to be tasked an emergency callout at any moment.

In the past year Marine Rescue has assisted more than 3000 vessels on the water in NSW, with almost a quarter being life-threatening emergencies.

At the heart of the organisation are its volunteers, who dedicate their time to saving lives. Standing at the helm of MH30 is Peter Steigrad, a seasoned volunteer who speaks fondly about the work he does at Marine Rescue.
