Surf Lifesavers are men and women who volunteer their time to provide aquatic safety supervision all over Australia's coastal environment.  

Currently Surf Life Saving Tasmania has more than 2300 active surf lifesavers who patrol the beach each weekend from December to March through our volunteer surf life saving clubs around the State.

All qualified surf lifesavers wear the internationally recognised red and yellow patrol uniform and can be identified by wearing the red and yellow quartered cap, long sleeved yellow shirt, red shorts, swimming costume, and hat.

The red and yellow cap is an internationally recognised safety symbol and is proudly worn by surf lifesavers so they are easily identified by the public, particularly when they are performing patrol duties in the water. The cap is also worn by lifesavers for their own safety so they can easily be identified by fellow lifesavers.
