Centre of Excellence FSWR

Sunday 20 August 2023

Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA), has announced Surf Life Saving Tasmania (SLST) as a National Centre of Excellence (COE) to enhance the Flood and Swift Water Rescue capabilities of surf lifesavers nationally.

Tasmanian surf lifesavers have excelled in recent years in this specialised area and have been called upon to assist flood victims in Tasmania, and other states.

This National COE will draw on SLST’s experience and research in international best practice to educate and equip surf lifesaving volunteers from around Australia with the necessary skills to perform flood and swift water rescues.

This is the first National Centre of Excellence for Surf Life Saving Australia.
