This Saturday we will be helping out at the Interbranch Life Saving Competition held on the Gold Coast.
It will be held at Tweed/Coolangatta Beach (Old Greenmount Beach). Marshalling begins at 7am and the contest will go to just after lunch.
Surf Life Saving Queensland is the state’s peak beach safety and rescue authority and is one of the largest volunteer-based community organisations in Australia. Surf Life Saving Queensland is built on a fundamental principle: to save lives. The organisation encompasses several diverse arms – lifesaving services, community education, surf sports, commercial training, fundraising, but they all feed contribute to that one overarching purpose.
Queensland’s mainland coastline stretches 6089 kilometres and there are more than 712 accessible beaches. Each year, there are more than 30 million visits to Queensland beaches.
Despite significant advancements in technology, techniques and knowledge, people still drown or die on our beaches.
Surf Life Saving Queensland exists to save lives, develop practices in education, prevention, emergency care and rescue. For more info visit www.lifesaving.com.au/
