Paramount to Develop Standard Operating Procedures for Volunteer Marine Rescue Services

Paramount Projects is pleased to announce a new appointment with Volunteer Marine Rescue Services at the Department of Fire and Emergency Services. Following on from previous work to improve Volunteer Marine Rescue's level and suitability of capital resourcing (Paramount has developed a Resource to Risk decision support model for resourcing Volunteer Marine Rescue units, and developed a business case to equalise Volunteer Marine Rescue’s funding in line with other volunteer emergency services in WA), a small project team is developing Standard Operating Procedures for the Service.

The development of these Standard Operating Procedures constitutes a logical next phase in working to increase the safety and operational effectiveness of the 37 Volunteer Marine Rescue units spanning the State's 13,000 kilometre coastline from Wyndham in the Kimberley to Esperance on the south coast. Standard Operating Procedures being developed include:

  • Body Recovery

  • Vessel Towing

  • Refuelling

  • Flares

  • Helicopter Winching

The project involves information searches, engagement with subject matter experts including a number of volunteer units, and meetings/forums with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services personnel and Commanders from the Marine and Rescue Association of Western Australia. Up to 15 Standard Operating Procedures will be developed in the project period.
