The Queensland Recreational Boating Council recently extended an invitation to the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) to become a member of the council. The QRBC has been actively working with QFES on the Marine Rescue Implementation Working Group since it’s inception and greatly values the relationship that has formed during this time.
Andrew Fielding (QRBC, Chairperson) said, “QFES is a great addition to the membership of the Council. Through our work with QFES in the development of the single volunteer rescue service, Marine Rescue Queensland, we have been able to share our members experiences and knowledge to help deliver what we believe will be a great service for all stakeholders. Just as our advice has been very well received, the QRBC also benefits greatly from our communication and conversations with the QFES team. We are very pleased to have them onboard and look forward to working with them in the future”.
QFES joins our other Queensland maritime government agencies and partners, Maritime Safety Queensland, Queensland Water Police, Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, Gold Coast Waterways Authority, Australian Volunteer Coast Guard, Queensland Volunteer Marine Rescue, Queensland Boating and Fisheries Patrol, SEQ Water.
