NiE Our Lifesavers

Our beaches are world famous for their beauty. The surf and sand draws thousands of visitors but there are potential dangers in our coastal environments that many people are unaware of.

Surf Lifesavers, wearing the internationally recognised red and yellow patrol uniform and red and yellow quartered cap so they can easily be identified, volunteer their time to provide supervision and ensure the safety of all beachgoers by patrolling these waterways. Lifesavers are trained to understand the risks involved with the size and strength of the surf, the treacherous rips and gutters that can occur and the threat of some marine creatures. Their role is to provide information to visitors to make safe and responsible choices about where and when they swim and to help someone if they get into trouble.
