Dear Fellow Lifesavers,
As a mark of respect, patrolling members across Victoria are encouraged to share a minute’s silence at 12.30pm today to honour the lives of the two Port Campbell SLSC members who lost their lives in the line of duty yesterday, and to send our thoughts to the third member, who is still recovering in hospital after the tragic incident.
It’s the last day of a very busy summer season on our beaches and I send you all a heartfelt thank you for the service you have given to your communities.
Our lifesavers and lifeguards performed 523 rescues since the 1st December 2018, as well as 2,950 first aid applications and 132,813 preventive actions. Thank you for your dedication and bravery.
Please take a moment today at 12.30pm to face the water and reflect in silence on the achievements your patrols have shared over the season and as a mark of respect to the highly-regarded lifesavers who sadly lost their lives at sea this Easter.
With sincerest regards,
Paul James, LSV President
