Res­cue group thanks Rio

Pilbara News - - Opinion -

The West Pil­bara Vol­un­teer Sea Search and Res­cue group in Dampier would like to thank Rio Tinto for its re­cent do­na­tion of a V8 LandCruiser tray-back ute.

The new ute will as­sist with vi­tal tasks such as re­fu­elling oper­a­tions and re­mote launch­ing of the in­shore res­cue craft the Sea Salt Lady, as well as be­ing a back-up ve­hi­cle for the trac­tor that launches the North West Shelf Ven­turer and Sea Salt Lady.

Our pre­vi­ous ute was no longer able to re­li­ably per­form the tasks we needed from it, so se­cur­ing a new ute was a pri­or­ity.

Thanks to the sup­port of Rio Tinto, we can con­tinue to pro­vide a high stan­dard of search and res­cue ser­vices to peo­ple in times of need.
