Busy December sees in 2014
The rescue crews are working on a 24 hour roster over the Christmas and New Year period to ensure that boaters in the Perth area are well looked after should an emergency arise. While the relatively cool weather has kept the rescue numbers down around Christmas, December 2013 was our busiest on record.
In total we were called to assist 119 vessels in the month of December, helping 440 people return safely to shore.
We have attended capsized vessels, vessels aground, boat fires, a number of medical responses, missing divers, swimmers and kite-surfers, as well as many boats experiencing mechanical difficulties.
