Everyday Lifesavers  

Let us know if you have any Everyday Lifesavers at your facility and ensure that they are properly recognised for their actions. 

Everyday Lifesavers are those people whose actions save the life of another. This could include the rescue of a person with a pre-existing medical condition/injury or stopping somebody from getting themselves into a dangerous situation before they require rescuing. 

We are proud to support the Everyday Lifesaver campaign within the aquatics industry and are always excited to hear how facility staff and patrons are making a real difference in the community. 

Workshops / Events 


Blue Connections was developed by LSV to connect the broader lifesaving community and like-minded people, brought together to connect, share and grow!

Over the next 3 months, LSV will continue hosting monthly keynote speakers, workshops and networking opportunities at our State Centre in Port Melbourne.

Enjoy the backdrop of Port Phillip Bay and the hospitality of our functions team whilst sharing insights with water safety enthusiasts from across the state.
