  • Volunteers join forces in new Tuggerah Lakes unit
  • January 20, 2014

Two Marine Rescue NSW units on the Central Coast have amalgamated to form a new unit to serve the boating community on the Tuggerah Lakes, one of the region’s most popular waterways for recreational boating.

Marine Rescue Toukley and The Entrance have joined forces to form Marine Rescue Tuggerah Lakes.

The 80 members tonight elected Stewart Masters and Ken Lawry as the Unit Commander and Deputy Unit Commander, respectively.

The amalgamation process has been under way since November, when the members voted to approve the merger, with the new unit now operational.

The unit’s contact telephone number is 02 4332 3055 and its new radio call sign is Marine Rescue Tuggerah Lakes.

UC Masters encouraged local boaters to practise good boating safety by Logging On with MR Tuggerah Lakes when heading out for a day’s boating and Logging Off when they returned.

The Entrance and Toukley units were located only three kilometres apart on the lakes system.

Bringing together the members and assets of the two units will create a stronger operation, providing more efficient use of our resources and volunteer effort and even greater coordination of emergency response on the lakes.

Marine Rescue Tuggerah Lakes will have five rescue vessels, including a Cobia Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat, 5m Maxicat and a jet ski.
