A regular update from SA's Leading Authority for Pool Safety, Swim & Survive and Aquatics Services

Royal Life Saving is a public benevolent institution (PBI), a deductible gift recipient (DGR) and a registered training organisation (RTO) dedicated to reducing drowning and turning everyday people into everyday community lifesavers.  Royal Life Saving is focused on reducing drowning and promoting healthy, active and skilled communities through innovation, reliability, evidence based advocacy; strong and effective partnerships; quality programs, products and services; underpinned by a cohesive and sustainable national organisation.  We are guided by the values of: Safety, Quality, Integrity and the Humanitarian tradition and have been serving the South Australian community for over 100 years.

Inland Waterways

As we continue to work with our stakeholders and key partners within The Murray lands and Riverland regions for initiatives and action plans to identify and implement prevention's for our black spot areas along the waterways. 
We have been liaising with key partners seeking likeminded individuals to form a group Steering Committee. This committee will be working collaboratively with us to raise and broaden community engagement, support us to implement safe community models around the locations stretching from the border to the Murray mouth.
Working with Government organisations, business enterprises, local community groups and Education sectors within the regions we will together work to reduce Inland waterway drownings.
Last month our staff were in Mannum at the Floatfest weekend to educate the community in safety along the river. Floatfest was a 2 day family event incorporating a range of activities including a come and try canoeing and an attempt for a world record attempt for the largest number of floating kayaks/canoes. Sadly they did not break the record but a great attendance was shown.
