Season 1 Episode 9
Who said video killed the radio star? In this episode of MRTV, we meet some of the volunteer radio operators who are The Voice of safety on our marine radio airwaves. We start by dropping in on the first day of operations of our new State Communications Centre with members of Marine Rescue Sydney and then Zoom north to meet Marine Rescue Cape Byron radio operator Julie Ritchie, who tells us about the marine radio operators’ role and how you can join their ranks. Our fishing guru Michael Guest gives us the lowdown on why it’s so important to have a marine radio on your boat. And get ready for a rescue mission with a difference by the fantastic volunteers from Marine Rescue Port Macquarie, who get on the tools to help a local family get back on their feet after the March floods devastated their home.
