A surf lifesaver is a trained volunteer that patrols our beaches on the weekends. Surf lifesavers undertake a number of roles including aquatic rescues providing first aid and emergency care and safety to all the public. There is also a number of other roles that are rewarding, you could lead a fit and healthy lifestyle, become trained in aquatic safety skills, compete in surf sports and make new friends. The biggest positive is giving something back to your local community.
