TURSA is proud to partner with Surf Life Saving Far North Coast to provide Beach Report signs for every patrolled beach between Yamba and Fingal Heads on the NSW North Coast.
The Beach Report signs display the conditions of the day, from rips and currents, stingers and dangerous marine animals.
With the start of summer, locals and holiday makers alike are looking forward to some beach time, however, it is also a time to be cautious.
The Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) Australia recently released their 2017 National Drowning Report in which it revealed a three per cent rise in drowning deaths across the country over the past 12 months. “Drowning is always tragic for the people who lose their lives, the families and friends they leave behind, the rescuers who made valiant efforts to save their life and the community in general,” RLSS chief executive officer Justin Scarr states in the report.
Surf Life Saving is a unique not-for-profit community cause that relies on public donations, fundraising and corporate sponsorships to help save lives on our beaches. TURSA has been a proud sponsor of the Surf Life Saving Far North Coast for over 10 years and is thankful for the work they do in keeping our beaches safe for the community and visitors to the region.
