You know at the beach that you should always swim between the flags.
You know that if you're in trouble in the water at a patrolled beach, you can raise your hand and signal to the surf lifesavers in the red and yellow caps for help.
But did you know that all of our surf lifesavers on your beach are volunteers?
Surf Lifesavers give their time to make sure that you and your family are safe at the beach.
In fact, it now costs an average of $86,000 to put a patrol on the beach each season.
So this summer we are putting our hands up for your support. Every dollar counts in helping us keep you safe at the beach.
Donate today and Be a Life Saver.
Surf Life Saving is a community cause that relies on donations to save lives on the beach. We need your help to fund our life saving work, this summer and for every summer to come.*
You don’t have to be a lifesaver to save a life - your donations play a critical role in keeping patrols operating across the country.
Every life saved is priceless, but every rescue comes at a cost.
Every piece of Surf Life Saving equipment - from rescue tubes to inflatable rescue boats (IRB's) - must be purchased, maintained and eventually replaced.
Each year Surf Life Saving has a responsibility to make sure our volunteer surf lifesavers have the most up to date training in resuscitation, first aid and rescue techniques.
