After six weeks of fun and physical training Brunswick SLSC is ready to welcome the latest graduates from their recent Bronze Medallion course.

All the graduates are locals from Myocum, Ocean Shores, Brunswick Heads, The Pocket and South Golden Beach, ranging in age from 15 to 43 years.

They have demonstrated competencies in rescue board handling in a range of surf conditions, as well as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), first aid, radio operations, tube and board rescue techniques and all factors relating to beach safety.

The successful graduates receive a Certificate Two in Public Safety.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
