Surf Life Saving Northern Region

Northern lifeguards carried out 659 rescues, 153 searches, 769 first aid treatments and 37,673 preventative actions over the 2014/15 season, involving a total of 127,734 members of the public.

They received $4,335 to fund four first aid kits and two resuscitation kits, assisting them in keeping the public in our community safe on the water throughout the 2016/17 season.

All of the staff are qualified in first aid and bystander resuscitation and take advantage of nine vehicles whilst delivering lifesaving services. The grant will ensure that all these vehicles are stocked with the equipment they need ensuring they are fully prepared in the event of an emergency.
