THE Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) in Honiara suggests for MP’s that Global Positioning System’s (GPS) must also be handed over with OBM’s to Constituency recipients.

Principal Marine Officer for MRCC in Honiara McPherson Wauo said the suggestion goes for anyone purchasing an OBM as well to buy a GPS purposely for rescuing if any bad situation occurs.

“One might cost for two to three thousand dollars but it is worth it,” said Wauo.

“The message we want for people in our provinces as we always mention in our awareness for them to know is for all OBM’s to have a GPS or radio signal control. This includes life jackets and other equipments as well for safety purposes.”
