The Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue Group has been assisting the Western Australian boating public since 1991. TRVMRG is a not for profit organisation operated by those who willingly dedicate their time to provide on-the-water assistance, radio coverage, administration, finance reporting, training and maintenance of equipment.
Our operational readiness is made possible by major funding from the WA State Government through the Department of Fire and Emergency Service (DFES) and limited funding from Wanneroo City, corporate sponsorship, public donations and fundraising.
Our skippers and crew hold nationally recognised maritime qualifications, first aid and Advanced resusitation certificates as you would expect when dealing with a leading professional organisation, which has a long history and valuable record of service to the boating community.
Our aim is to uphold the highest level of professionalism, care and support to all those calling for assistance by maintaining appropriate standards in personnel development, equipment and training.
We continually revise and improve our standards through professionally conducted courses, assessment by independent consultants, public feedback and on the job training. Our volunteers are trained and encouraged to attain excellence in performing their duties and responsibilities as volunteers under all conditions.
Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue maintains a fleet of purpose built rescue vessels and retains an experienced and dedicated crew that are available to assist you 24/7. We are proud to have the most effective marine rescue capability in our area.
Our skippers have over 60 years experience in specific marine rescue techniques; our boat crew undergo extensive and continuous rescue training.
We are always able to respond quickly, professionally and effectively to any marine incident.
