Rescue group volunteers recognised
The Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group has recognised two of its long-serving members with life membership.
Peter Munn was a member of Fremantle Sea Rescue for three years before joining the RVSRG as a radio officer.
RVSRG commander Graham Martin said Mr Munn had contributed to the group over the years by helping out with fundraising, working bees, clean-ups, and had also undertaken positions on the committee when required. “Peter has been called upon numerous times to conduct a radio watch at HQ due to an incident/recovery or search being conducted, where his experience, knowledge and his professionalism was needed and utilised to the maximum,” he said.
“His nomination is well-deserved following 22 years of dedication to the group.”
Peter Corcoran was also awarded life membership after joining the group in 2003.
“Since I have known Peter I have witnessed a hardworking individual that puts his hand up for everything,” Mr Martin said.
“He used to take on after-hours radio shifts that nobody wanted to do and has held various executive positions.”
“Peter is a fine skipper and I will always feel safe going to sea with him.”
