AVCG Port Welshpool - New vessel

82 Lewis Street, Port Welshpool, 3965

In the 2017-18 State Budget, the Victorian Government allocated $200,000 for a new search-and-rescue vessel for Port Welshpool Coast Guard.

Situated in the local government area of South Gippsland Shire Council, the Port Welshpool Coast Guard plays an important role in the safety of water users in the local area, by responding to marine emergencies and raising community awareness about marine safety.

The Port Welshpool Coast Guard has received a new 'Category 4' vessel, which is ideal for beaches, river inlets and bays in calm to moderate conditions.

The new search-and-rescue vessel enables the committed and dedicated volunteers to continue to service their local community and assist other emergency service agencies.
