Non Attendance COVID
Please do not attend any Woonona SLS activities if you:
a. have any symptoms (i.e. fever, coughing, sore/scratchy throat, shortness of breath or loss of taste or smell)
b. have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 c. have tested positive for COVID-19 – wait until you have been given medical clearance to attend again
If item a or b apply to you PLEASE contact your patrol captain ASAP and notify them of the situation in case additional resources are required to be found.
We have a legal obligation to provide an agreed level of service. As such, when subbing patrols you MUST ENSURE the person who you are subbing with has all the required qualifications (eg if you are ART qualified you must ensure the person who is coving you is also proficient in this qualification). In the event you are not the only person on your Patrol Team with a qualification it is your responsibility to ensure that the qualification is covered on the patrol (either by the person filling in for you, or ensure that the other qualified member in your team will be patrolling on that date). Once you have confirmed you sub remember to let your Patrol Captain and Morgan know.
Need to find someone to sub with you? Post it on the Woonona SLSC Facebook group, call your mates but if all else fails call Morgan. Don’t forget to get in early, especially for peak times like Xmas and Easter.
As lifesavers we must present a professional image to the community and be easily identifiable as an on-duty lifesaver. The mandatory SLSA patrol uniform comprises of a:
SLSA yellow long sleeved patrol shirt
SLSA red patrol shorts
Red and yellow quartered patrol cap (Bronze Holders)
SLSA red patrol peaked-cap or wide-brim hat
This is just an overview, for more detail and anything else you need to know please contact Morgan directly or check out our Facebook page and/or closed group.
Have a great time!
See you on the beach,
Woonona SLS Club Captain
