Life Saving Clubs offer a variety of lifesaving activities to suit a range of ages and abilities for local residents and holiday makers alike. There is opportunities for just about everyone to become involved!
Due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, the red and yellow flags will no longer be put up at Victorian beaches, in a measure to help prevent public gatherings. The latest Government advice to Victorians is very clear that if you can stay home, you must stay home.
In response to this, Lifesavers will be reducing their numbers on patrol to a minimum and observing beaches from a surveillance location rather than in the flags. Lifesavers will also be directing the public to take extra precautions when wenting the water.
