VMR Mornington - New vessel

792 The Esplanade, Mornington, 3931

In the 2017-18 State Budget, the Victorian Government allocated $350,000 for a new search-and-rescue vessel for Volunteer Marine Rescue Mornington's (VMR Mornington).

Situated in the local government area of Mornington Peninsula Shire, VMR Mornington 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.

VMR Mornington will receive a new Close Offshore 1 vessel, which is ideal for bay and coastal areas up to 15 nautical miles.

The new search-and-rescue vessel will enable 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 VMR Mornington to ensure volunteers are provided with the vessels and equipment they need to keep their local community safe on the water.
