The iconic red and yellow flags will be flying high from September 18, signifying the start of a new Surf Lifesaving Season.
The 15 SLSC’s on the Coast have been working tirelessly behind the beach to prepare and ensure that all members and equipment are ready to return to the beach, with some changes due to COVID.
Director of Life Saving at Surf Life Saving Central Coast, Simon Cusack said its awesome having the flags back up for the safety of beach goers, giving them somewhere safe to swim.
“Providing a safe location is the best thing we can do, it allows us to give the public a great place to swim and making sure they have a safe place to swim at all times.
“We will be restricted to our patrolling numbers due to the current health orders and we’re following NSW Health guidelines, and Surf Lifesaving NSW Guidelines.
“We will be socially distancing, always be wearing masks except when we’re in the water, and we’ve got to follow the health orders like everyone else.
“You can still get out there and enjoy the beaches, just please don’t gather in large groups.
