A surf lifesaver is a trained volunteer that patrols our beaches on the weekends. Becoming a surf lifesaver is satisfying, fun and rewarding.
The primary role of Floreat SLSC is the protection of beach users and to save lives. The lifesaving duties are carried out by volunteers, from October to March. Patrols are rostered for Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays during the summer season, with each lifesaver patrolling approx. once per month. Patrolling is a great way to give back to your community. When on patrol you will be required to observe swimmers, attend to first aid cases and perform rescues. Each patrol member must wear the red and yellow patrol uniform which will be supplied by the club.
To undertake this role you need to hold or obtain the following qualifications and prerequisites:
The Surf Rescue Certificate provides participants with the skills and knowledge of basic patrolling and surf awareness in order to be able to participate in lifesaving operations and act in the role of Water Safety Personnel.
The Bronze Medallion course provides participants with the skills and knowledge of patrolling and surf awareness in order to be able to participate in lifesaving operations.
Please contact us to become a Floreat SLSC member and transfer from your existing club. Once you are a registered member, our Patrol Officer will contact you to provide you with the Patrol Roster and allocate you a Patrol Team.
The club's Patrol Roster and Teams can be found on the Floreat SLSC TeamApp below or the SLS Members Portal.
The app makes it easy to check your roster, news and information about the club. You will also receive push notifications whenever a team admin posts something new.
