As part of our Our Life Saving Agreement we commit to an area of operations.
There is a Primary area of operations which is where Patrols actively operate and act on any incidents or safety concerns. For Bondi this area is Ramp 5 near North Bondi (Map location or see location), to the Bondi Icebergs (see location).
There is also a Secondary area of operations – called the Emergency Response Area. This is from Bronte Beach (1.9km away – see location) to Bondi Golf Course (1.7km away – see location) . This area is where we can conduct extended patrolling, or react to requests from Duty Officers or members of the public who have sighted an issue that needs investigation. A Patrol Captain will not send members into the Secondary area without being certain that all obligations in the primary area are being met.
These areas are shown in the attached map.
