Its not all about sign on and sign offs……All emergency services have operators who are the initial contact taking calls and handling incidents via 000. Surf Lifesaving is no different and we have SurfCom. The SurfCom Team is a group of trained volunteers working out of the Sydney Northern Beaches communications centre in Long Reef.
Our SurfCom operators come from our surf club community and have surf club knowledge and assists in providing coverage to the 21 beaches within our Branch.
The reason we recruit surf lifesavers is so we can utilise their knowledge....it’s not all about sign on and sign offs.
SurfCom operators are the frontline from patrol to emergency service including police, ambulance, fire and helicopter.For those who are long service members and want to do something different to patrols but still want some volunteer hours, consider the SurfCom team….your knowledge can only grow as you assist those on the beach…and again, it’s not all about sign on and sign offs.
Our operators are fully trained and mentored throughout the season.
This is your chance to Patrol Differently and become a member of our SurfCom team which is one of the most valuable support operations within surf lifesaving. If you are interested in joining the SurfCom team email email@example.com
