Happy Australia Day
During the hot Australia Day “weekend”, people headed to our beaches to cool off and Bondi’s patrolling members were kept busy, looking out for those at the world’s most famous beach, along our coastline and helping out at Garie SLSC in the Royal National Park!
On the weekend and today we logged 1000s of preventions, multiple complex first aids, and a conservative 30+ rescues at Bondi, including our IRB section in the bay.
And our work doesn’t stop at the beach, our active members are also patrolling on our offshore rescue boat (SR30) and our support skis.
A massive thank you to all our volunteers, including many many SRCs, cadets, nipper parents, long service, and special duties active patrol members. Many of them have stayed after hours to protect our flags on hot days, in the midst of a heatwave.
