Surf Crew Car
What is the Surf Crew Car?
SLSQ officially has a new lifesaving weapon up its sleeve following the launch of the Surf Crew program and vehicle on the Sunshine Coast, aimed at educating the thousands of beachgoers who flock to our beaches every week.
The program will enable additional lifesavers and Community Awareness staff to visit surf clubs and busy beaches across the Sunshine Coast to provide free educational clinics and teach beachgoers how to stay safe in the water,”
The Surf Crew Car will be used year-round, visiting local schools and key community events in an effort to reach as many members of the public as possible. It has also been equipped with a defibrillator, rescue tube, first aid kit and radios to ensure SLSQ has additional resources ready to respond immediately in the event of an emergency situation.
The latest edition to the SLSQ fleet has been made possible due to the Australian Government’s Beach Drowning Blackspot Reduction Program (BDBRP), which has provided funding for the delivery of the Surf Crew Car over three years.
The Surf Crew car will have designated tours/activations for each shift, running from Noosa, to Kings Beach, Caloundra. On some occasions the Surf Crew Car will make it’s way to Rainbow Beach, Bribie Island and Redcliffe.
