The Tasmanian Government continues through our Service Agreement to provide financial support for SLST and Volunteer Marine Rescue groups to subsidise the costs of providing a volunteer education, rescue and lifesaving service to the Tasmanian community across the state. This assistance offsets costs for providing free surf lifesaving services on Tasmanian beaches and for recreational boaters, lifesaving skill development programs for our members, community programs and our public liability insurance.
