New Years Message from President of Surf Life Saving Queensland

Fellow Lifesavers,

 My warmest congratulations on a very successful peak beach patrol period so far. Volunteers and ALS Lifeguards have once again performed magnificently to protect our bathing public during the December-January holiday period.

 In 2012-13 and 2013-14 we had an amazing nil beach drowning record; with over half the period gone, we have to report one Fraser Island death (probably due to a medical complication) with some very close calls:

 On 2 January two of our roving ALS Lifeguards performed life-saving CPR at Double Island Point;

 On 6 January a Burleigh Heads-Mowbray Park member working as a Lifeguard on the Gold Coast performed a rescue and resuscitation of a Chinese student, again saving his life;

 Earlier in the period, Sunshine Coast lifesavers responded swiftly to an emergency beacon at Alexandra Bay, Noosa National Park, and saved an Irish tourist from certain drowning; he was in a critical condition for a while but recovered in medical care.

 We have had many other near-misses, shark sightings, difficult surf conditions, but always our Volunteer Lifesavers and ALS Lifeguards perform admirably for the public good.

 Well done to everyone, and all the best for the completion of yet another successful holiday season.

 

Ralph Devlin QC

President, SLSQ

2018 Youth Leadership Camp

The Airlie Beach/Hamilton Island Youth Development & Leadership Camp for 2018 was another great success! Jam packed with fun activities and team bonding! The ocean rafting was a crowd favourite! Thank you to all our youth members for their outstanding contribution this season! And a big thank you to the leaders Kent, Lesley, Kim, Daneal & Macey for chaperoning

This years youth member that supplied the most volunteer patrol hours was JACK SWINDELLS. Great job Jack congratulations, at the time of judging Jack had put in 147 hours.IMG_3444  IMG_3443

Our youth patrol members now account for about two thirds of the clubs patrol members and contribute approximately 2000 volunteer hours patrolling at Sarina Beach. They are well trained and committed to the safety of the public visiting Sarina Beach. Without the fantastic effort of these terrific kids the club would struggle to supply compliant patrols week in week out. As a club we couldn’t be prouder to have the all as our members.
