​VMR Mornington has always prided itself on being a no fuss ready reaction unit able to launch and be underway within 8 minutes of the initial call.

 

We have never sought a pat on the back for the work that we do.

We do not ask for payment.

It is nice to know that you are appreciated though. This dedication and service has recently been recognised by the Boating Industry Association, presenting us with an award for Safety Initiatives.
The award reads:

'for outstanding achievement in providing safety initiatives and carrying out courageous rescue efforts for the boating public'.

VMR Mornington won this award 4 YEARS IN A ROW – 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009 & proudly 2011.
