Part of our Aussie culture is spending time at the beach and surf. And part of our beachscape is the visible presence of life savers and Life Saving Clubs.
Any Life Saving Club member will tell you they are always in search of young volunteers to recruit to keep our beaches safe, secure and swimmable for everyone.
With the growing popularity of Frankston Beaches, there has been an increase of rescues and other incidents this summer so the Frankston Life Saving Club is currently seeking new members who are interested in becoming a surf life saver. The training is engaging and practical and will give you the skills to save a life, on and off the beach.
The Club also provides community education through its Nippers junior program.
Training will commence February 2015.
Since 1923, The Frankston Life Saving Club has provided patrol and rescue services along Frankston beaches conducting standard patrols within the patrolled area and patrols outside their primary area using inflatable rescue boats, all terrain vehicles, foot patrols and other methods.
This is a great way to meet like-minded people and feel part of your community with a club that is family friendly.
