Volunteering

Our active members participate in one or more activities including radio operation, rescue boat operation, maintenance, fundraising and administrative functions. We train you and also provide SES workcover insurance cover, at no cost to you, so that you are protected while engaged in VMR Bribie Island activities.

We also provide you with your initial uniform and insignia when volunteering for radio or crew duties once your probationary period has been satisfactorily completed.

Training for these activities is supplied free of charge; however, we have to pass on any additional charges levied on us such as examination and registration fees for those members who require the Marine Radio Operators Certificate of Proficiency (MROCP).

Prospective active members need to understand that acceptance for active duty is not automatic and, in most cases, is subject to interview, assessment and possible waiting lists. We also expect all our active members to participate in occasional fundraising activities as our needs determine.

Active members of VMR Bribie Island provide an important service to the boating public of Moreton Bay and Bribie Island which is both satisfying and valued. In return we offer support, camaraderie and the best view on Bribie Island!
