June 2019 Recipients
Nelson Surf Lifesaving Club patrols at Tahunanui Beach and operate a search and rescue squad for fast response to emergencies in the inshore areas of Tasman Bay and estuaries.
It received $6,463.50 to purchase two AED machines that will be available to the public through external lock-boxes at the Marine Rescue Centre and Tahunanui Beach Base.
These boxes will be accessible 24/7 by members of NSLSC or any member of the public. Providing AED’s at these locations is another way that the Nelson Surf Lifesaving Club can support the community even when lifeguards aren’t present.
