MEMBERS PORTAL

Attention All Members: this is a new system similar to lifesaving online, of which all members will need to join, we strongly recommend you do this over the next couple of months so there is not an influx from all clubs doing the same thing closer to the start of next season, if you have not already. You can use the link which you will find under the heading Membership on the club web site. Alternatively go to portal.sls.com.au and create an account following the steps, (there is also a quick start link under the heading Membership) from here you will also be able to access the lifesaving online membership area and payment gateway. Within the portal you are able to use E-Learning - this system is accessed through Lifesaving Online by clicking on the My Course tab Any questions or help with the above please contact Sharon at the club office@northpalmbeach.com.au

WORKING WITH CHILDREN

Attention All Members: this is another item that will also need to be addressed before the start of next season, as this has been rolled over for all states and a requirement for SLSA. So for those of you that have already registered and given your details to the club many thanks and this does not apply to you. For those of you that have not yet could you please use this link to register (this can also be found under heading Membership) and following the information you will be required to provide the club with your paperwork once this has been approved by the RTA. Again if you require assistance with this please do not hesitate to contact Sharon at the club office@northpalmbeach.com.au

Patrol Captains Meeting - set for 2nd August after AGM

Surf lifesavers and lifeguards use flags to indicate the safest swimming areas for the beach going public. To stay safe, remember the "FLAGS."

F Find the flags and swim between them.
The red and yellow flags represent the area patrolled by lifesavers and lifeguards. They mark the safest place to swim at the beach.

L Look at the safety signs.
The safety signs help you identify potential dangers and daily conditions at the beach. These are located at beach access points and at the flagged areas. Please read them carefully before entering the water.

A Ask a lifesaver for some good advice.
Surf conditions can change quickly (water depth, currents, wave size and type). Talk to a lifesaver or lifeguard before entering the water.

G Get a friend to swim with you.
Always swim with a friend so you can look out for each other’s safety and get help if needed. Children should always be supervised by an adult.

S Stick your hand up for help.
If you get into trouble in the water, stay calm. Raise your arm to signal for help, float and wait for assistance. Float with a current or rip. Don’t try and swim against it.
