The introduction of the RWC into the Life Saving Support Service arena has proven to be extremely successful, marking a significant step in our voluntary patrols.

The RWC's have proven to be one of the most valuable pieces of rescue equipment used on our beaches. There has been positive feedback received by both Surf Life Saving members and members of the Community.



Duty officers are rostered throughout the Patrolling Season. They are on 24/7 callout, they work with the Director of Lifesaving and Call Out Teams of each Surf Life Saving Club.

Call Out Teams consists of 10 members who would be capable to respond immediately to an emergency outside normal Patrolling hours - if you are interested in being part of your Clubs Call Out Team please contact your Director of Lifesaving.
