Marine Rescue Port Kembla is illuminating its boating safety reminders following the installation of a new electronic sign in front of the unit’s vessel base on Foreshore Road.

Marine Rescue Port Kembla Unit Commander Kevin Bradley said the $22,000 sign was funded through the NSW Ports 2023 Community Grants Program.

“We owe a lot to NSW Ports for making these grants available for volunteer associations and not-for-profit organisations to give benefit to local communities and for us, the boating community,” he said.

Unit Commander Bradley said the sign has an important role to play in reinforcing Marine Rescue NSW’s boating safety messages to boaters preparing to depart from the Port Kembla Outer Harbour boat ramp.

“The purpose of the sign is to portray and deliver safety messages to the general boating public for Logging On and Logging Off with Marine Rescue NSW, providing weather reports, lifejacket reminders and making sure that people are aware of the circumstances they are dealing with,” he said
