Bega Council Renews Lifeguarding Contract With ALS

The Australian Lifeguard Service (ALS) has successfully renewed its lifeguarding contract with Bega Valley Shire Council for a further three years.

The ALS will employ up to 25 lifeguards across the region during the peak Christmas holiday period and has provided professional lifeguard services to Bega Valley for the last five years.

Council has continued to choose the country’s number one contracted lifeguard service in Australia, ensuring best practice and the seamless integration of professional lifeguards with volunteer lifesaving services.

ALS Lifeguard Manager Nigel Tebb is pleased to be continuing the positive relationship with council into the future.

“The Australian Lifeguard Service is pleased to have secured the lifeguard contract for Bega Valley Shire for another three years. The council is very proactive in the area of improving safety for all beachgoers and we look forward to continuing the positive relationship we’ve built with council.

"Last year almost 200,000 people visited the region’s beaches over the summer holidays and we are expecting another big year this year," said Mr Tebb.

The expertise of the ALS was on clear display during last summer with lifeguards rescuing 178 people and performing first aid on over 650 people during the five week period.

As the leading lifeguard service in Australia, the ALS ensures a total service provision, integrating the Australian Lifeguard Service with Surf Life Saving’s volunteer patrol structure, state-wide support operations network, 24-hour emergency callout system and strategically located Westpac Rescue helicopter services.

The ALS is currently hiring now in Bega Valley Shire Council. For more information please visit our website.
