Lifeguard training and services

Lifeguards are necessary for every water event at a dam, lake, river, or swimming pool. Without them, events cannot go ahead.​

Lifeguards start patrolling at the age of 14. They do this voluntarily and rely on the generosity of the public to help them keep water users safe. These children, teenagers and young adults patrol with a passion for serving their community. No matter how big or small you are, they are trained to bring you safely to shore should you need assistance. Their time is spent out on the water on a rescue board, or if they have qualified as a lifesaving skipper or a crewman, on a boat.​

Not only are our lifeguards skilled in rescuing, but they are exceptional swimmers who maintain their fitness and strength to ensure that rescues are quick and efficient. From the age of 14 lifeguards are taught emergency care and are able to assess emergency situations and perform critical first aid functions until paramedics arrive.
