The Lake Eppalock volunteer coast guard has recently bought two hand-held Raymarine thermal cameras thanks to a grant from Heathcote and District Community Bank’s Enterprise Foundation.
‘‘These cameras will be invaluable as an aid in the event of night searches for missing fisherman and swimmers on Lake Eppalock and will provide yet another means to the coast guard for searching in the event of missing members of the recreational water users community,’’ Lake Eppalock coast guard deputy commander Bert Redstone said.
‘‘As a safety-orientated community volunteer association, the provision of any device which may be used to assist us in preventing the loss of life on water will always be welcome.
‘‘These items give us greater scope during a night search due to body heat emissions from a person in the water.
‘‘Being responsible for raising our own funds to operate, VF5 gratefully acknowledges the generous assistance given to enable this purchase, which confirms the foundation’s continuing support for the community at large.’’
