DPI Provides Funding for Binoculars

Every surf club in NSW will receive high quality binoculars through a grant from the Observation Towers Funding Program managed by the Department of Primary Industries.

Surf lifesavers have had a busy summer so far with big crowds and many rescues and incidents, including a number of beach closures due to possible shark sightings.

Increased activity has highlighted the need for surf lifesavers to maximise their surveillance capabilities and this funding will ensure every club in NSW has effective, water-resistant binoculars to aid in early identification of hazards in the water.

Clubs will receive their binoculars in time for the start of the 2013-2014 season.
