Marine Rescue NSW Commissioner Stacey Tannos said there are nearly 800 women in the organisation and room for many more.

“We are always looking to improve on that number,” he said.

“I encourage more women to join us in saving lives on the water.”

About 25 percent of the MRNSW workforce is female.

“That’s one of the highest ratios across the State’s emergency services,” said Mr Tannos.

Elected General Director Patricia Fayers said the MRNSW Board appreciated the role women played in the organization.

“On behalf of my fellow Directors I’d like to thank our female members for their service,” she said.

Ms Fayers, the first woman elected to the MRNSW Board, is a volunteer at Marine Rescue Central Coast.

“Our women do a brilliant job,” she said.

“They crew rescue vessels, receive marine radio distress calls and take part in fundraising.

Women also occupy key roles in training, accounting and corporate services.”
