About Patrols

Patrolling the beach is the underpinning priority for members in any Surf Life Saving Club. Patrols have priority over and above all other club activities including surf sports events. At Eimeo, Active bronze medallion holders have an obligation to fulfill all their patrolling duties. SRC holders must do at least five full patrols in their first year as an Active Cadet and full patrols in subsequent years. If you cannot attend a rostered patrol you must find a substitute (someone who is willing to swap a shift with you).

PATROL ROSTER

  • Eimeo SLSC has a number of patrols of volunteer lifesavers which patrol the beaches of Eimeo from the start of the September school holidays until the last weekend in April each season. Three patrols work each weekend, that is, PM shift on Saturdays and AM & PM on Sundays.
  • Each patrol works through a rotating roster of these shifts which means everyone patrols about once every 4 weeks.
  • A roster is issued via email and at the start of the season and updated regularly. A copy can also be found in the club website. New members are assigned to a patrol team upon transfer or completion of their course. Any concerns regarding the roster should be addressed to the Club Captain via administration.
