Life Saving Beach Patrols

The primary role of any SLS club is the protection of beach users and to save lives. The lifesaving duties at Alkimos beach are carried out by surf patrols from Alkimos SLSC, consisting mostly of active members. Beach patrols are the most important component of club activities. Generally, Alkimos SLSC maintains Sunday morning patrols, and includes public holidays. All active award proficient members will be included on a patrol roster. Members who have their HLT011 (Provide First Aid) are welcome to be included in being part of the patrolling team.

Patrol dates and hours are determined by lifesaving agreement between the Club and the City of Wanneroo. The patrolling season is generally on Sunday mornings from the last weekend in October through to the last weekend in March. Patrol hours are usually 9.00am – 2pm on Sundays and public holidays
