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.
