Primarily we do this through the provision of patrols and the marking the safest swimming area between two red and yellow flags. We also provide additional services such as Aquatic Risk Consultancy, Public Education and Support Services to meet this purpose.
Our training allows us to operate in the near-shore surf zone during hours of daylight. This is our specialty and we often plug the gap between the land and air based rescue services and marine rescue operators in this unique environment. Surf Lifeguards are trained to handle most conditions at their beaches and are extremely competent at performing rescues in the surf and in the water around coastal rock formations.
