The familiar red and yellow of the volunteers of Umina Surf Life Saving Club has officially returned the shores of Umina Beach, with an informal raising of the flags at Umina Beach on September 29.
“Today we raised the red and yellow flags for the start of our lifesaving season,” said Umina Surf Life Saving Club president Mr Stephen Scahill. “Our volunteer surf lifesavers will be present each weekend and public holiday until April 2019.” Mr Scahill advised beach-goers to swim between the flags, keep an eye out for any safety signs, avoid swimming alone, and to learn how to identify and avoid a rip.
“We’re also on the lookout for new members so if you’re keen to volunteer and want to gain your bronze medallion or Surf Rescue Certifi cate contact the club,” he said.
