To be ready to take on the responsibility of protecting and patrolling our beaches, Surf Lifesavers must be supported with training and education to develop necessary skills that save lives. When you visit the beach, you want to know that someone is watching out for you.
When your friends and family are in the surf, you want to trust there is someone there to help, should things not go according to plan.
Experience and training with a variety of equipment and scenarios is essential, however it is costly. Our clubs need financial support to keep our island nation safe in the water. Your support has helped us get ‘Back to Beach’, year after year.
The warmer months are busy for our clubs. With over 100 million visitors to beaches predicted this season, you’ll be pleased to know it’s easy to help out. When you support Surf Life Saving, you save lives.
Your support has kept our summers safe. This summer, your support will help us all get back to the beach, safely.
Surf Lifesavers take their job seriously. They are highly trained, and must pass a minimum of a Bronze Medallion to be allowed to patrol. Training for a Bronze Medallion is detailed and participants must prove their skills and knowledge in areas such as surf awareness, first aid, anatomy and physiology, CPR, rescue techniques and patrol methods to name a few.
To train a certified lifesaver costs upwards of $850. Your support has ensured there are over 46,000 patrolling members, across over 300 clubs, patrolling over 400 beaches this summer. Your support is saving lives.
