Important Change to Log-On Procedure
Fremantle Sea Rescue members logging on with their FG number will now also be asked for their vessel’s registration number.
In an effort to increase safety, Fremantle Sea Rescue’s management committee have recently decided to collect registration numbers for ALL log-ons, even if the caller has given an FG number. This move is in reaction to a significant number of discrepancies observed recently whilst investigating overdue vessels. These discrepancies can happen for a number of reasons including vessels being sold with membership stickers still on the dash, records that have not been updated or details were mis-spoken or mis-heard due to poor radio conditions or like sounding letters.
We would like to remind all members that your FG number belongs to YOU, not your boat. Whilst we also keep information about your boat, your FG number stays with you even if you sell your vessel and buy a new one. This system enables you to have multiple vessels all under the one membership and FG number. We ask all members to follow these simple steps to help us keep track of you on the water.
