State Emergency Service Marine Rescue volunteers

Volunteer Marine Rescue organisations in South Australia provide a high quality volunteer emergency service along the vast coastline of the State and many miles of inland waterways and lakes.

Other important tasks include vessel recovery and retrieval, medevac and assisting the Police and other government agencies. Their rescue craft, crewed by specially trained volunteers, have been strategically positioned on the metropolitan and regional coastline and at locations along the Murray River and lakes.
