Wet Season Lifesaving Service

The Wet Season Lifesaving Service will be running again in 2017 and we are looking for lifesavers to help out.

Each patrol is about four hours around high tide on the weekends, and involves a Rescue Water Craft (RWC) and a car working their way from the Nightcliff Jetty to Lee Point and return.

The patrol focuses on providing information on the risks of using the water during the Wet Season to beach goers and water users. Over the years we have seen a number of people in the water, especially parents with small children, unaware of the risks of Box Jellyfish stings and we would like to continue educating the community so we can prevent the very serious consequences rather than treating them.

Numbers permitting we would like to run six weekend patrols from Saturday 28 January to Sunday 5 March.   

More details will be sent out in the New Year but if anyone is interested in being involved please email SLSNT on 

New SAR Team members wanted!

SLSNT is expecting our new 9.5m Offshore Rescue Boat in January 2017, so we are keen to make sure there are enough drivers and crew to operate our 24/7 marine Search & Rescue service.

We are searching for SLS members that would like to fill these valuable positions. Training on offer includes Elements of Shipboard Safety (Crew) and Coxswains Grade 1 (Driver), which are also commercial maritime qualifications.

Ideally you would be a member of a SLSNT club, 16 years of age or over, hold a bronze medallion and be willing and able to assist in emergency marine Search & Rescue situations. 

If you are interested in this training and joining the SAR Team, please email your full name, club and whether you are interested in becoming a crewie or driver!

More information on the SAR Team and our 24/7 marine Search & Rescue service can be found on our website by clicking here.
