Way back in 1490, Leonardo da Vinci thought it would be a great idea to have an inflatable personal flotation device when on the water.

Over 500 years later it’s still a great idea.

That Leonardo was a smart guy.

Be smart. Be like Leo. Wear your PFD when out in your boat.

Marine Rescue Hervey Bay

Meet Kimberley and Dave; two members of our ever hard working Admin team.

Kimberley came to MRHB recently after a career in a large agricultural business. While Kimberley is quick to point out she ‘knows nothing about boats’, she was looking for some post-retirement structure and literally walked in when passing by.

Dave came to MRHB two years ago after a long career as a Parks and Wildlife Ranger in Tassie and the NT; so if you want to know about ‘bush tucker’, Dave’s your man. Dave not only works in Admin but crews on our rescue vessels. When asked, Dave says he came to MRHB to save his marriage by getting out of the house! Dave added he loves to be part of such an eclectic team.

Thanks Dave! Thanks Kimberley!

Marine Rescue Hervey Bay

A commercial dive boat was quick to report three missing divers in the vicinity of the Artificial Reef, east of Big Woody Island, when this afternoon’s storm reduced visibility to zero. #HyneTimber Rescue and Rescue III were activated to join the search in conditions that were quite shabby to say the least.

After about two hours of the divers drifting on the surface, Hyne Timber Rescue spotted them and was able to successfully rescue all three.

A great outcome thanks to the quick response of the dive boat skipper, and the efforts of Water Police and our Radio Operators, skippers and crew.

Communication, coordination and teamwork.
