Volunteer Marine Rescue Bribie Island is a volunteer organisation dedicated to:
– promoting, fostering and supporting boating safety amongst members, and the boating public generally, by arranging training and education programs
– providing a rescue service, a rescue base and such equipment deemed necessary for the operation of the rescue service and the Association generally.
The Unit was born out of the Bribie Island Boating and Fishing Club, which in 1970 assumed responsibility for assisting mariners in distress. It became Bribie Island Air Sea Rescue in 1982 and changed its name to VMR Bribie Island Inc. in March 1997.
