Members of the Brisbane Lifesaving Service helped out the local Rainbow Beach lifesavers last month while testing their skills in a new environment

The Brisbane Lifesaving Service (BLS) recently undertook a week-end of training at Rainbow Beach giving the locals some time off.

Shane Urban from Surf Life Saving Queensland said: “Members of the Brisbane Lifesaving Service patrol various beaches in South East Queensland.

“Over the weekend the members patrolled at Rainbow Beach Surf Life Saving Club which provided them the opportunity to test their skills at a beach they usually wouldn’t patrol at.

“It was a busy weekend with a proficiency also being run. Proficiencies are conducted yearly to ensure all volunteer surf lifesavers have the necessary skills to patrol on Queensland beaches.

“Four members who are currently training to become lifesavers also participated in a training session at Rainbow Beach.”

Great to have you here everyone!
