Commencing in 1991 as Two Rocks Sea Rescue we were an independent volunteer group using personal vessels to undertake rescues.
Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue Group (TRVMRG) became incorporated on March 19, 1997 and has developed into the group we have today, gazetted under the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) and a member of Volunteer Marine Rescue WA (VMRWA).
In 2019 DFES undertook new branding and we are now known as Marine Rescue Two Rocks (MRTR).
