Torquay Marine Rescue Service - New engine replacement
Fisherman's Beach, Torquay, 3228
In the 2017-18 State Budget, the Victorian Government allocated $50,000 for engine upgrades for Torquay Marine Rescue Service (MRS).
Situated in the local government area of Surf Coast Shire, Torquay MRS 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.
Torquay MRS receiveed two new Yamaha engines (115h/p) for its Stabicraft vessel, which are now in use.
The new engine upgrades will ensure the search-and-rescue vessel meets commercial standards, enabling the committed and dedicated volunteers to continue to service their local community and assist other emergency service agencies.
The Marine Search and Rescue office within Emergency Management Victoria is in regular communication with Torquay MRS to ensure volunteers are provided with the vessels and equipment they need to keep their local community safe on the water.
