With the generous support of a $2000 Community Grant from the City of Greater Geelong, Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club has purchased 17 swim cans to assist in life saving training activities.
“The mission of Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club was to keep the beach safe and educate its members and the public in safe beach behaviour,” club president David Pavia said.
“The swim cans are a vital tool in training life savers in ocean swimming and board rescues. We have trialled the cans over the winter months and found them also useful in training life savers on inshore rescue craft rescues.”
IRBs account for the majority of ocean rescues in Victoria, and the marker buoys are a great way for drivers to hone their driving and rescue skills in a safe controlled manner.
The buoys will also be used during the Ocean Grove Open Water Swim to be held next year on Sunday 28 January.
