All volunteer surf life saving clubs provide beach patrols on their allocated beaches. Clubs may provide more than one swimming area if there is the requirement in their area.
The beach patrol is a team of volunteer members rostered on duty for a specified time. The patrol team is coordinated by the Patrol Captain who is responsible for the coordination of actions in monitoring the beach and in times of rescue and emergency care.
Members aged 13 -15 can begin patrol duties with their Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) qualification and their annual proficiency test.
Junior Active members aged 15-18 and seniors aged 18+ need their Bronze Medallion and annual proficiency test to do patrol.
