Killcare Surf Lifesaving Club members completed their first physical course at the Club last week in over six months as the Club entered its third week of the patrolling season.
The ‘Provide First Aid’ course, which was held on September 25, was led by trainer Richard Taylor.
Education and Training Manager, Stephen Pearson, said the Club would run more first aid courses in the future.
“Congratulations to the trainees, who all passed with flying colours, Leisa Hartigan-Cooper, Zac Webb, Jaqui Payne, Tim Folland, Shirley McCoomb and Craig Sheppard,” Pearson said.
“These trainees will enhance our first aid capability on patrols.
“With this award you can patrol, and we may see (Club President) Craig on the beach in the red and yellow kit this season.
“The award also sets up the Advanced Resuscitation award on October 10.
“Places [are] strictly limited and only one per patrol.
“ART requals will be done from 8am to 9am prior to the main course.”
The club has also celebrated its members, Lachie Franz and Charlie Pate, who have raised funds for the Black Dog Institute’s Mullets for Mental Health fundraiser.
The Killcare duo sported mullets for the past month and raised $1,181 for the cause.
“Well done fellas, now get a haircut,” Club President, Craig Sheppard, joked.
