New South Wales
The Australian Lifeguard Service (NSW) is an independent division of Surf Life Saving designed to provide professional lifeguard services to local government, private corporations, sporting organisations and community groups.
Currently, we provide lifeguard services to Councils in fifteen (15) Local Government Areas of NSW with more than 80 beaches patrolled. Further services are provided at a number of resorts and for the National Parks and Wildlife Service along the NSW coastline. At least 340 lifeguards are employed on these beaches.
The Australian Lifeguard Service is the largest provider of professional lifeguard services in New South Wales. We also work with land managers who provide their own service by providing advice and assistance on qualifications, training, standards and compliance issues.
With more than 25 years experience, the Australian Lifeguard Service (NSW) is in a unique position to offer Land Managers a highly professional and cost effective beach safety system.
Through Surf Life Saving NSW, the Australian Lifeguard Service offers nationally recognised qualifications to their staff, ensuring our lifeguards are well-trained and extremely competent.
The Australian Lifeguard Service (NSW) has been certified to the ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management Standard. We take great pride in providing the optimal lifeguard service to the communities of NSW.
