Gosford Lifeguards are back at work

Gosford Council lifeguards have completed this years pre-season training at Avoca Surf Club with Vital First Aid, this being about the 18th year with Vital. The lifeguards refreshed their skills in beach rescue, oxygen use, advanced first aid skills, CPR and defibrillation as well as spinal care. Once again the lifeguards showed an extremely high level of professionalism which can only work to keep our beaches safe again this year.

COVID-19 UPDATE

The venues we use especially in the Sydney region are clubs, as such, they have the right to set their own restrictions around who can and cannot enter the facility. These restrictions are totally out of our control and not always in line with Health Guidelines. We recommend you contact the venue you are booked to attend the day before the course and check that you are not restricted based on your individual situation. We can transfer your registration free of charge (if due to COVID venue restriction)  only if we are notified the day before a course. Normal cancellation policies will apply if we are not contacted prior to the event.

We are taking all required steps to ensure everyone’s safety including removing tables, no breaths required when doing CPR, ample cleansing wipes, refusal of attendance for any participants presenting with flu or cold symptoms, or those that should be self-isolating. 

Our standing request for unwell students: If you are unwell with any type of “cold or flu” we will NOT ALLOW YOU TO ENTER THE COURSE.

Face masks are not mandatory but we recognize you may choose to wear a mask when visiting our venues
