Overview:VMR Brisbane is a volunteer organisation whose primary purpose is to save the lives of people in distress in Moreton Bay and surrounding areas.
As a volunteer marine rescue organisation, we provide a "first response" emergency service 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Volunteer Duty Crews maintain a vessel monitoring service every weekend and public holiday. After hours calls are attended to by our Emergency Standby crew. We work closely with other emergency services organisations including Water Police, Ambulance and SES.
We currently operate three purpose-built rescue vessels. Our primary rescue vessel is a Kevlacat 3000 powered by twin 250hp Suzuki four-stroke outboards. Our most recent acquisition is a 5.9m Swift inflatable RIB powered by a 175hp Suzuki. Our third vessel is a 4.59m Stabicraft for inshore work and powered by a 50hp Honda four-stroke outboard. All vessels are fitted with all the required safety equipment, radios, and additional equipment necessary for operations in our area.
