Welcome to Search and Rescue Queensland

Phase 1. The build up.

Members of the boating public are welcome to sign up today to Phase 1 of our membership program.

Our systems are different to what you may have been use to in the past with other organisations, but it has to be because they financially failed. Search and Rescue Queensland has a two part sign up process, firstly we get you click across to our parent company and sign up your vessel to the registration program. The registration program simply manages your vessels government registration for you, and you can chose from weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments. Importantly, it costs no more than you are currently paying, and a fortnight before your registration is due to the Queensland Government, you’ll receive a email confirmation that it’s been paid on your behalf.

Phase 2. Operational

The plan is to become operational in our first 4 key areas as soon as possible. These areas are Gold Coast, The Bay of Islands, Moreton Bay, and Sunshine Coast which reaches up to Double Island. With the word Queensland in our name, we do plan to extend further north, but don’t have a date for this expansion.

Commercial vessels are available to us immediately, but we require the boating public to sign up to Phase 1, the sooner the better. With our founder having 14 years of qualified commercial rescue experience under his belt, and a masters degree in crisis management, high performance organisations, innovation, our systems, planning and the way our business is designed is what is going to set us apart from any competition.

In 14 years, every single person has been found every single time, it’s not just a search, it’s Search and Rescue.


Vessel tracking

We’re bringing the most significant tracking tools to recreational boating ever seen. This real time data will allow us to look for incidents and vessels in danger from weather events, and have information available to us from vessels calling for help.

Use of drones in Search and Rescue

Different to other systems, we are only using drones to find people, using programmed flight patterns and high tech cameras. Vessels will also be operating near by to rescue the people.

The are an extension of effort, not a replacement.

SAR COM, a rescue hub.

A communication hub, similar to the QFES “Watch desk” is being developed and will also be the home of the administration team. A multilevel facility, the ground floor will also house a warehouse where spare vessels and equipment is kept including the quartermaster for uniform and other items that will be distributed to our network of rescue bases.
