Marine Rescue NSW is our State’s official volunteer marine rescue service, committed to saving lives on the water. Safety on the water is our highest priority – for both our volunteers and the boating public.
The State’s newest rescue service was established in July 2009 and officially took to the water on New Year’s Day 2010, backed by our volunteers’ decades of skill and experience. We are not a Government agency but a community owned and focused organisation.
MRNSW brings together members from the three former marine rescue organisations that had long served our community with distinction - the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association, Royal Volunteer Coastal Patrol and Volunteer Rescue Association’s marine fleet – into a single integrated service.
Both iOS and Android applications are native, written in Objective-C and Java respectively.
The server side application (CMS and API) is written in Laravel 4.
All the content provided by the organisations is provided via a CMS, which is then fed to the applications via a REST API, using the JSON format to transmit the data.
