Freycinet (pronounced Fray-sin-nay)
Volunteer Marine Rescue Association Inc is a 100% volunteer, not-for-profit, community service organisation, based in Swansea on Tasmania's East Coast overlooking the magnificent Freycinet Peninsula.
We were formed in 2001 as a Flotilla of the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association. In 2011 we affiliated with Surf Life Saving Tasmania (SLST). Since 30 June 2015 we have operated solely as Freycinet VMR as part of a network that has brought all Tasmanian marine rescue volunteers under the management umbrella of SLST.
Our objectives are:
To promote safe boating.
To assist in the preservation of life and property.
To train members, and members of the public, in safe operation of sea craft and use of marine radio.
Freycinet VMR operates in conjunction with Tasmania Police and Surf Life Saving Tasmania to provide marine emergency response within the Glamorgan-Spring Bay Municipality from Bicheno to Orford.
Freycinet Volunteer Marine Rescue welcomes new members.
