Marine Rescue Ulladulla has welcomed a $40,000 State Government Community Building Partnership grant for a new marine radio aerial structure.

Member for South Coast Shelley Hancock presented the grant to Unit Commander Ken Lambert, Deputy Unit Commander Clive Millen and members of the unit.

Mr Hancock said she was thrilled to see the progress of the new Marine Rescue unit for Ulladulla and how it was taking shape.

“The community of Ulladulla and valued visitors to the area will all benefit from the services provided by Marine Rescue members from the new Unit facilities,” she said.

“To further enhance Ulladulla Marine Rescue’s capabilities, I’m pleased to be able to present $40,000 for a new aerial structure that will increase marine radio efficiency and operations well into the future.”

UC Lambert thanked Ms Hancock and all who assisted with the funding process for the grant.

“Words cannot express the gratitude of the committed members and management of Marine Rescue Ulladulla. Discussions are planned between the Emergency Systems Manager of Marine Rescue NSW and the radio equipment suppliers, Karera, who connected the temporary aerial configuration to the demountable buildings,” he said.

“We are looking forward to the implementation of new marine radio technology and systems, equipment, aerials, application of new radio operations and the aerial structure that will all ensure optimum performance for marine radio communications. Quality uninterrupted marine radio transmissions provide the vital link of communications between all vessels at sea and land based radio centres and repeater radio stations.”

DUC Millen thanked the Ulladulla community and visitors who had continued to support the unit.
