Nambucca Council Renews Lifeguarding Contract With ALS

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

The ALS currently employs up to 10 lifeguards across the region at peak periods over the summer holidays and has provided professional lifeguard services to Nambucca Shire Council for 10 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 the Nambucca Shire for another five 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 40,000 people visited South Valla, Nambucca Main Beach and Scotts Head 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 season with lifeguards performing 1,967 preventative actions while also reducing the amount of rescues by 80% compared to the year before.

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.
