- The ten lifeguards from Glenelg and Goolwa beaches are expected to be especially busy this Summer. Several engagements, including the Summer Salt festival, are taking place from mid-December through to late March. Good luck South Australia and enjoy the festivities!
- The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, visited Victorian lifeguards at a South Melbourne beach to learn about beach patrol on their Australian tour last month. The occasion was covered across several media channels, including a humorous interaction with lifeguard Sebastian Top. Well done Sebastian and take care of those feet!
- A big shout out to John Campton, for his amazing work over the last twelve years at ALSQ. John’s hard work and dedication to the service will be greatly missed but we wish him the best of luck in his new endeavours!
- Congratulations to Tim Wilson who has recently been appointed Lifeguard and Communication Supervisor for ALSQ. Tim has the not-so-easy task of overseeing the day-to-day responsibilities of the State communication centre as well as the SEQ Lifeguards.
- The Sunshine Coast Council is on track to meet the growing demands of the region, adopting Queensland’s Lifeguard Service Plan 2018 – 2022. The Plan serves as a blue print for service delivery along the Sunshine Coast beaches by enhancing parity in service levels, addressing operational inconsistencies, improving gaps in service levels, and responding to short-term growth demands.
