Life Saving Information

ABOUT LIFESAVING

Surf lifesavers are Australians for life. A surf lifesaver is a trained volunteer that patrols our beaches on the weekends. They undertake a number of roles including aquatic rescues, providing first aid and emergency care and providing surf safety information to the public.

Becoming a surf lifesaver is satisfying, fun and rewarding. You can lead a fit and healthy lifestyle, become trained in aquatic safety skills, make new mates, compete in surf sports, and give something back to your local community. You may also help save someone’s life one day.

PATROLS

Further information on patrols can be found by clicking onto the Patrol Tab. Members who are not allocated to a patrol should contact the PATROL OFFICER via the office admin@sorrentoslsc.org.au or lifesavingdirector@sorrentoslsc.org.au who will then allocate you to a patrol group. To be eligible for patrols, you must complete one of the awards below:

  • SURF RESCUE CERTIFICATES 
  • BRONZE MEDALLION
  • FIRST AID

If you would like to do any of these courses please go to our Education page for more information.
