The SLSA Operations App has been created for current patrolling members to conduct and report on patrol activities on a mobile device over traditional paper-based logbooks.

For example, members can use the Operations App to:

  • Record patrol sign-in/off, statistics, roster information and updates
  • Monitor local service activity feed
  • Track patrol vehicles
  • Log gear and equipment issues as well as gear inspection information
  • Create and access powercraft logs
  • Perform risk assessments using the Surf Risk Rating tool
  • Log and view incident report details

The Operations App links to SurfGuard and the SLS Beachsafe App in real-time so that information is shared and recorded much quicker and faster, reducing any paperwork and administrative burden associated with patrol operations.
