  • Marine Rescue recognised in the 2015 NSW Water Safety Awards
  • September 19, 2015

Marine Rescue NSW has again been recognised for its work to save lives on the water, named as the winner of a prestigious State safety award.

The innovative MarineRescue mobile App has earned the award for the Most Significant Contribution to Water Safety with a Focus on Inclusive Practices at the 2015 NSW Water Safety Awards, announced tonight.

The App, launched in March, connects boaters directly to MRNSW and provides a range of safety information that could help save lives in an emergency.

Boaters can use the App to Log On quickly and easily with MRNSW and head out knowing someone responsible is watching over them while they're on the water and will start to search for them if they don't return when expected.

Marine Rescue Jervis Bay and Marine Rescue Botany Port Hacking both were Highly Commended in the Local Community Initiative of the Year category.

The Jervis Bay unit was acknotwledged for its boating and water safety education for local school children growing up around one of the State's most picturesque waterways.

The Botany Port Hacking unit was commended for its boating safety education program. Volunteers regularly head out with the unit's education trailer, starting in the early morning darkness, to busy boat ramps and other high-traffic locations to speak to boaters about the need for safety on the water.

Commissioner Stacey Tannos congratulated all the MRNSW personnel who shared in tonight's honours for their hard work and commitment to the safety of the NSW boating community.
