90 SECOND STATEMENT FEDERAL PARLIAMENT

by Lucy Wicks MP, Member for Robertson, 24 Feb 2014

SUBJECT – MARINE RESCUE CENTRAL COAST

I rise to honour the work of Marine Rescue Central Coast in upholding the safety of people out and about on the water in my electorate of Robertson.

Being out on the water is a regular and popular past-time for many of us on the Coast, which means that supporting organisations such as Marine Rescue is vital.

There are more than 100 volunteers working from their bases at Point Clare and Terrigal. They provide radio monitoring 12 hours a day, seven days a week.

Last year, these tireless volunteers together spent 71 thousand hours on duty. There is hardly any rest: more than 130 vessels got into trouble last year.

Working in teams, Marine Rescue volunteers were presented with difficult, risky and sometimes dangerous situations to assist almost 400 people in strife on our waterways.

Alongside our hard-working water police, these volunteers are heroes on the water.

So, it seems entirely appropriate to recognise the Unit Commander of Marine Rescue Central Coast, Pat Fayers.

Earlier this month in my electorate office, Pat was honoured with a National Medal.

The National Medal is awarded by the Governor General to recognise long-serving and dedicated volunteers in Australian communities. It highlights people who put their own safety at risk to protect others.

For more than 15 years of faithful service, Pat completely deserves to receive this distinguished civilian medal.

As a Coalition Government, we believe in the importance of voluntary effort and voluntary organisations.

So thank you to the hard-working team at Marine Rescue Central Coast.

We are all safer in the water because of your tireless and selfless work.
