Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ) is the state’s peak beach safety and rescue authority and is one of the largest volunteer-based community service organisations in Australia. Throughout Queensland, the organisation’s six branches and 59 Surf Life Saving Clubs now comprise of close to 36,000 dedicated individuals.
SLSQ’s commitment is to save lives and continually work towards their vision of zero preventable deaths and injuries on Queensland beaches.
In the 2011-2012 patrol season SLSQ saved 2,861 lives and undertook 344,053 preventative actions.
In nearly every instance, reliable radio communications formed an essential part of the rescue operations.
The sun, surf and sand are the reasons many people love going to the beach but these are also the very elements that damage the equipment that the surf lifesavers use every day.
There is no second chance when it comes to saving lives so AA Radio is undergoing pre-season preventative maintenance work on SLSQ’s entire radio communications network, radio terminal equipment and Emergency Response Beacons to ensure that every piece of equipment is in optimum condition for the 2012-2013 patrol season.
AA Radio is committed to supporting SLSQ’s vision of zero preventable deaths and injuries on Queensland beaches.September 11, 2012 5:43 am
