Patrols – keeping the beach safe
Every weekend and public holiday through the season, patrols monitor the beach and keep swimmers out of trouble. Patrol members are all volunteers who have a range of skills such as advanced first aid, radio operation, defib, spinal management and rescue boat operation. And, of course, strong swimming and handling emergency situations.
