The new local and international patrol members of the Brunswick SLSC: (L to R) Anthony Chambers, Zephyr Audus, Jonte Burmeister (from Germany), Nicholas Pittore (from USA) and Kyle Love

Graduates from the latest Bronze Medallion course run by the Brunswick SLSC will be part of the patrols looking after swimmers over the summer school holidays.

The new graduates have demonstrated competencies in rescue board handling in surf conditions, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), first aid, radio operations, tube and board rescue techniques and other areas relating to beach safety over their six-week course, chief training officer Braeden McHugh-Easy said.

During the Christmas break Brunswick Heads beach will be patrolled by the volunteers from Brunswick SLC on weekends and public holidays, including Christmas Day. At other times the beach will be patrolled by a council lifeguard.

Other patrolled beaches in the Byron Shire include Byron Bay, Lennox Head and Ballina (Lighthouse Beach).

‘From all of us at the Surf Life Saving Club, have a safe and fun Christmas and remember to always swim between the flags,’ Braeden said.
