Beach Patrols

Role of LifesaversBeach Patrol at Tathra Beach

With ever-increasing temperatures and visitors to our region, our lifesavers are challenged to ensure our community and visitors enjoy their time at our beach. Not only is a lifesaver’s work around the flagged area, they also provide a vital role in assisting police and other authorities with search and rescue operations.

Patrol responsibilities

If you are unable to attend your patrol roster duty, please find a replacement. Ring your Patrol Captain and inform them of who will be replacing you. If, however, you have contacted at least 3 people and are still unable to find anyone, please contact your Captain.

It is imperative that there be at least 3 people on patrol – IRB driver, ARC holder, and Bronze Holder with crewman

If the patrol duty is not fulfilled Tathra Surf Life Saving Club will not be able to compete in any carnivals for the season both senior and junior.

Patrol Captains, please contact your patrol on the Thursday night before your patrol and ensure that they all remember that they are rostered on.

All members wishing to compete at senior carnivals must fulfill their patrol obligations – at least 20 hours to be eligible.

Christmas Day Patrol

We are required to have an 8 hour patrol on Christmas Day. We will need some volunteers to spend some time on the beach between 0900 to 1700hrs. Please look for the list that will be posted in the club in December. Every little bit helps on this day.
