The foundation of our patrol teams is built upon the skills of the bronze medallion holders that make up the majority of our teams along with the younger lifesavers with surf rescue certificates.
Trigg Island operates specialist life saving equipment and all lifesavers have the opportunity to train for advanced qualifications and develop new skills in:
- Operating rescue craft;
- Inflatable rescue craft (IRB)
- RWC (JetSki)
- Drone operations for aerial surveillance
- First Aid qualifications
- Advanced Resuscitation (ARTC)

Weekly Patrol Teams
If you are at the beach over the weekend and need assistance, patrol members can be found in red and yellow uniforms at Trigg Beach. The patrol shelter is highly visible. Roving patrols will also make their way north and south in the Trigg Island ATV and the 4WD vehicle. Always wave for assistance is you require the help of your volunteer surf lifesavers. Remember, volunteers are giving their time to keep you safe at the beach. Please be respectful and courteous.
