Surf Life Saving - Sydney Northern Beaches

Gear and Equipment Inspection

All surf clubs are required to ensure they maintain a safe environment and meet their responsibilities in regards to gear and equipment. Each year all volunteer surf lifesaving equipment shall be inspected prior to the commencement of the patrol season by nominated Branch supervisors/inspectors in accordance with the annual gear and equipment inspection program.

Gear inspection for the SNB Branch will be held annually on the 3rd Sunday in August. The Branch recommends the Club Captain acts as a coordinator for their own club leading up to and on the day of gear inspection. Clubs that make an effort to have a “dry run” of gear inspection 2-3 weeks prior typically find the actual day goes well.

Each Club must provide at least 1 person to assist as part of the gear inspection team. Clubs should notify the Branch office of this person at least 1 month prior to the gear inspection date.

Gear inspection for the 2016-17 season will be held on Sunday 21st August 2016. Detailed information on the specific requirements for the 2016 gear inspection will be emailed to the Club Captains and will be available here once it is finalised.  Last season's information can be downloaded as a guide in the meantime.
