In the last six months, 13 children aged 0-14 fatally drowned in Victoria: that’s nine more than the five-year annual Victorian average and the highest number of drowning deaths in this age group in over 20 years (since 1999/2000).
URBNSURF Melbourne’s trained lifeguards joined forces with Life Saving Victoria (LSV) before the Australia Day weekend to demonstrate rip current safety in a controlled, simulated rip, following record-breaking drowning numbers this season.
The role of SLSA President is now open for Expressions of Interest from interested candidates.
