Ma­rine Res­cue in train­ing

The Northern Star - - NEWS -

WA­TER cops and Ma­rine Res­cue crews will be scour­ing the waters off Bal­lina’s coast­line this week­end to lo­cate three peo­ple aboard a boat miss­ing af­ter a fish­ing trip.

But while the peo­ple are man­nequins and the boat is a de­coy, the mock-ex­er­cise will be taken very se­ri­ously as for Ma­rine Res­cue vol­un­teers pre­pare for a busy sum­mer sea­son .

About 30 vol­un­teers from the Bal­lina, Bruns­wick, Iluka-Yamba, Evans Head and Point Dan­ger units will take part in the ma­jor joint-agency search and res­cue ex­er­cise.
