Surf Life Saving Tasmania are committed to establish its role as Tasmania’s peak aquatic rescue agency and believes everyone should have the opportunity to be safe at the beach.
With easy access to beaches this means that spending time at the beach is common and water safety is engrained in our culture.
Engaging the community through programs that promote water access, safety, hazard identification, along with survival techniques is a key method it employs to meet our vision of zero preventable deaths in Australian waters.
Our range of community programs are designed to ensure all community members have the chance to learn about beach and water safety in a way that’s right for them.
We offer specially designed programs for multicultural communities and new arrivals as well as our school-based Surf Education programs such as Beach to Bush, Ready.Set.Rescue, First Aid in School for Primary and High School ages along with Surf Survival program for High School students.
