Patrolling members are reminded if they are unable to make their roster commitment they should look for a qualified substitute. If unsuccessful, ensure the rostered Patrol Captain is advised.
Patrollers should arrive alert, ready and aware of current and forecast tide, swell and beach conditions, 15 minutes prior to the shift starting.
At the start of the patrol shift, report to the Patrol Captain to complete the log book requirements, with name and start time. While on patrol, be active – there is always something to do. If there is one person between the flags, there must be at least two patrollers standing with tube observing.
At the end of your patrol shift, ensure the Patrol Captain completes the sign out time.
Importantly, respect the fact that first and foremost we are life savers and representing TSLSC at all times.
