Becoming a volunteer surf lifesaver is a rewarding experience
You could save a life
Remember going to the beach when you were little? The towering red and yellow flags your parents told you to make sure you stayed between, and surf lifesavers in their uniforms not too far away, watching over the beach and making sure everyone was safe in the water. You probably wondered what it takes to become a surf lifesaver and how they got to that position. By training to become a volunteer surf lifesaver, you could be the next person to pull someone out of the water and experience the rewarding feeling of having saved a life in danger.
