About Lifesaving and Patrols

As the season swings into action, Surf Life Saving Queensland would like to say a big THANK YOU to all those active patrolling members who spend many hours protecting our beach.

The Lifesaving and Volunteer Patrols activities of the club are the very core of why the club exists. Each year a Club Captain is elected who assists the Patrol Captains in observing the Patrol Operations Manual and following the requirements of the Patrol Agreement signed between Council, Lifeguards and Coolum Beach Surf Life Saving Club.
