Who we are

Unfortunately, despite significant advances in technology, techniques and knowledge, people still drown on Queensland beaches.

Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ) is the state’s leading authority on aquatic safety and surf rescue, and one of the largest volunteer-based community service organisations in Australia.

SLSQ aims to set the benchmark in lifesaving service provision, rescue practices, emergency care, training and education as we strive to make our stunning coastline safer for everyone who uses it. A commitment to continuous improvement across all areas of our operation ensures we are highly regarded across Australia and around the world.

From humble beginnings, when the first official rescue was recorded on a Queensland beach in 1909, SLSQ has developed into a groundbreaking and highly innovative organisation encompassing 58 clubs and more than 30,000 men, women and children across the state.

We are leaders in our industry, and are committed to maintaining this stance to ensure we are equipped for the future.

Since its inception, SLSQ’s surf lifesavers and lifeguards have directly saved the lives of more than 135,000 people through in-water rescues, and educated in excess of 10 million people about surf and aquatic safety through targeted and grassroots community awareness programs.

Our vision Zero preventable deaths in Queensland public waters.

SLSQ is directly affiliated with, and is part of, Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) and the International Life Saving Federation (ILSF).

Our mission SLSQ will operate as a proactive and effective peak body, leading the way in lifesaving service provision, education, sport, beach safety advocacy and community leadership.

As a not-for-profit organisation, SLSQ relies heavily on community support and donations to continue our vital work both on and off Queensland’s beaches. It is the generous support of Queenslanders that enables us to help keep beachgoers safe.

Our strategic imperatives Why we exist

Committed To Our Community: To advocate water safety management and continue to enhance the reputation of SLSQ as the peak body.

SLSQ is built on a fundamental principle: to save lives. Our organisation encompasses several diverse arms – lifesaving and lifeguarding services, community education, membership services, surf sports, fundraising, commercial training and member training – all supporting one overarching purpose.

Connected To Our People: To recruit and retain the best people through support and development of their skills and knowledge. Effective In Our Business: To plan and execute our day-to-day operations to an outstanding level of efficiency, with continuous improvement always in mind.

Queensland’s mainland coastline is extensive, stretching more than 6,000 kilometres from the Gulf of Carpentaria in the west and Cape York in the north to Point Danger in the southeast. With more than 700 accessible beaches along this expanse, the state boasts some of the world’s most popular sandy stretches, attracting approximately 30 million visitors to our beaches every year.

Sustainable For The Future: To ensure SLSQ is equipped for the future through continuous growth, strong financial management and sound governance.

PATR O N ’S M ES S AGE

His Excellency

Paul de Jersey AC Governor of Queensland As Patron of Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ), I am delighted to offer this welcome message and to thank our lifeguards and volunteer lifesavers - and the able administration which supports them - for their service to Queensland over the past 12 months.

As the Queensland summer approaches, eyes turn inevitably to our golden beaches and inviting waters, secure in the knowledge that SLSQ is keeping watch. I thank the Board, partners and supporters for their ongoing commitment to SLSQ, and wish the staff and volunteers a successful and safe year ahead.

The red and yellow colours of Surf Life Saving are iconic and recognisable, and for those in trouble in our oceans, they can mean the difference between life and death. To strengthen the safety net SLSQ provides on our beautiful beaches, the organisation has implemented a number of important initiatives over the past twelve months. From extended patrol hours at key locations to rolling out the ‘Surf Speak’ booklet, with key phrases translated into eleven languages, I commend SLSQ for its continuing focus on protecting and educating Queenslanders and our interstate and international visitors alike.

His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC Governor of Queensland

PR E MI ER ’S M ES S AGE

Annastacia Palaszczuk MP Premier of Queensland Minister for the Arts All of us who enjoy Queensland’s magnificent coastline appreciate what a fabulous job our surf lifesavers do on our patrolled beaches.

in full patrol uniforms providing arriving passengers with beach safety messages in 15 languages is a great way to engage with tourists, educate them and, most importantly, save lives.

In 2015/16, Surf Life Saving Queensland’s (SLSQ) volunteers and professional lifeguards performed at least 800,000 preventative actions to safeguard swimmers, treated around 20,000 first aid patients, rescued more than 3,600 beachgoers and, most importantly, maintained Queensland’s enviable record of no drownings between the red and yellow flags.

SLSQ has also continued to build on the success of the On The Same Wave program, which I had the privilege of launching in 2010 when I was the Minister for Multicultural Affairs. We recently increased funding to this program, which distributes water safety information in almost 30 languages and conducts education workshops at schools and information sessions for migrants and refugees.

But, as if that was not enough, the dedicated members of this iconic organisation are now contributing more and more off the beaches.

On behalf of all Queenslanders, I thank SLSQ and their hardworking volunteers for the great job they do both on and off our beaches.

I congratulate SLSQ for their initiative in establishing Emergency Response Groups as an after−hours callout service to support other agencies with skills and equipment during times of need, such as extreme weather events.

Annastacia Palaszczuk MP

With my Government securing extra flights to bring 500,000 more visitors to our State, I also applaud SLSQ for expanding the airport welcoming initiative to include not just the Gold Coast airport, but also Cairns and the Sunshine Coast airports in peak times. Lifesavers

Premier of Queensland Minister for the Arts

PR E S I DEN T ’S R EP OR T

Ralph Devlin AM QC President

Membership services

I have the honour to present my sixth and final president’s report at the end of an interesting and productive 2015/16 season.

Rob Campbell and his committee have led the way during my five years, re-constituting the Committee from being ‘postcoded’ to skills-based. While all such change can be painful, this transition has been highly successful. Manager Brenda Lofthouse and her team work closely with a talented volunteer committee. The winners are our members, who benefit from sound evidence-based policy and leadership.

There has been no greater satisfaction for me in lifesaving than to have led SLSQ since July 2011. We have seen such interesting changes in our Association during that time. In this final report, I would like to reflect on some of those changes, because to reflect on the recent past will help us see what the future holds for SLSQ. On a recent visit to the Royal National Lifeboat Institute in England, I saw an inscription in a stone plinth that went something like this: “Any Petty Seaman may guide a ship becalmed. But when her keel reaches the depths of Hell and her deck scrapes the Heavens, then is called for the good offices of a Pilot.”

The Membership Sustainability Project, endorsed by the SLSQ Board in 2014/15, seeks to address issues that may retard growth in our membership at all levels, and is now bearing fruit as a result of a lot of creative thinking and hard work.

Such has been my time at SLSQ. There have been good times when leadership was easy, but there have been tough times too, when leadership required wisdom and a good dose of luck.

I have loved every minute of attending state leadership camps as well as the National Leadership College, in which our delegates excel every year.

The volunteers

Surf sports

The SLSQ Board has always championed the critical role of our volunteers. With 30,000 members and more than 3,500 rescues recorded annually, our volunteers are the cornerstone of our association, which was founded in 1930. Our volunteers are our frontline representatives, primarily responsible for maintaining the reputation of Surf Life Saving as the most recognised and respected charity and community organisation in Australia. This is a huge responsibility which each volunteer discharges admirably.

Queensland dominates in surf sports, although New South Wales draws blood occasionally. I have attended most interstate contests and have always been amazed at the tenacity of our athletes in the maroon caps. For our members generally there are plenty of opportunities to shine. Our surf sports officials, under chairman Charles Melloy and manager Stuart Hogben, do a magnificent job. The National Sports Review will hopefully bring a fresh look at our great sport, for the betterment of all. Our State Championships have been a joy to watch. Our nippers never cease to amaze. Our masters never stop trying.

My Board has always worked to mend what can be mended, improve what can be improved, and support wherever we can do so effectively. Education has been a hot topic in recent years and we have worked hard with volunteers and staff to bring change for the better. Safety, recruitment, sustainability of the struggling clubs - these are constant issues given our close attention.

Governance Since the Leadership Capability Project of 2011-2013 the Board has driven towards a higher awareness and performance in its governance. This project was led by the remarkable Michael Fritschi, who returns at intervals to audit our performance. Not only the Board, but the Council of our six Branch Presidents, our Senior Management Group, our CEO and COO, and our Volunteer Standing Committee Chairs receive Michael’s advice and feedback. As I go out the door, I would like to think the performance of these key committees and personnel has risen to a new level of honesty, industry and accountability.

The mantra of my time as your President has been ‘We at State Centre must always value-add to the lives of our volunteers, who themselves strive to serve, to save and to belong’. I hope our members feel we have been successful, or at least sincere, in our aim to effect continuous improvement.

Lifesaving Committee The Lifesaving Committee, under Peter Lucas, is a skilled and industrious group which really cares about our practices, our skills, our policies and our volunteers. Staff member Peta Lawlor is a rising star in this field, always giving 100% to her role.

From the day I took office, my mantra as president was: ‘No more “us and them”, no more “silos”; if we work together, the sky is the limit.’ I have endeavoured to lead the organisation in this way throughout my time.

Brisbane Lifesaving Service (BLS) has been a genius of an idea and an Australian first - a virtual surf club with close to 100 active members in metropolitan Brisbane. I am very proud to have been President for the inauguration of BLS.

Disaster management

We are a model institution because we make no exceptions in the expectation of good conduct by all, towards all. May our ‘zero tolerance’ culture continue at SLSQ. Our future depends upon it and our members rely upon it.

The Brisbane floods of January 2011 and the subsequent floods in Bundaberg and Roma defined a whole new dimension of service by our association to the Queensland public. As part of the State Disaster Management machinery for Queensland, the status of our volunteers, lifeguards and staff as a capable, ready reserve in times of disaster is recognised by successive Queensland governments.

As I leave the President’s chair there are a couple of projects not yet realised, but I am confident those goals will be reached when the time is right.

SLSQ CEO John Brennan OAM and our COO George Hill ESM are the public faces of the SLSQ Disaster Management role, but many more volunteers and staff also interface with local Disaster Management Committees in the regions. I am very proud this initiative blossomed and grew on my watch and thank you to all who have made that journey possible.

Conclusion Thank you to volunteers and staff alike for your support and fellowship through my term. I am immensely proud of your dedication, professionalism and loyalty to our cause. I have greatly enjoyed many trips around Queensland in which I have experienced the great enthusiasm of our clubs, branches and services.

Australian Lifeguard Service

Thank you to the SLSQ Board and Councillors for what you do, at personal cost of time away from your families.

Our expansion of the ALS into the Sunshine Coast in 2012/13 was especially satisfying for me as a ‘Sunny Coast’ boy. Chief lifeguard Greg Cahill, assisted by many in the team, including Rhys Drury and Anthony King, have seen to it that the Service in this region has developed into a best-practice outfit. This was recognised by an internal sector-wide audit conducted by the Sunshine Coast Council in the summer of 2015/16. I believe ours is a model for all in Australia to see.

Thanks to the Chairs and standing committees of SLSQ for the time you give and for your skills, energy and leadership. Thanks to CEO John and COO George and all senior staff for your guidance of this organisation, in an atmosphere of mutual endeavour, respect and trust. Thank you to my wife Frances for your support and understanding throughout my nine years on the SLSQ Board. You are my rock.

The Service continues to operate to a high level across Queensland, contracting to 18 regional councils and assisting where possible on the Gold Coast.

We all are united by our desire to serve, to save and to belong; what a great place to be.

The Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service and PolAir When the Queensland Police Service and SLSQ partnered in 2012 to trial a police helicopter capability, everyone sensed it could be a ‘marriage made in heaven’. And so it has turned out, with PolAir 1 on the Gold Coast and PolAir 2 at Archerfield in Brisbane. A recent extension of the police contract for a further period of six years shows the strength of this relationship after almost four years.

Ralph Devlin AM QC President - Surf Life Saving Queensland Deputy President - Surf Life Saving Australia

With two Westpac helicopters in the air, doing a great job for the public since 1976, our helicopter service leads the way in Australia, led by our chief pilot Paul Gibson. Credit must also go to former chief pilot Peter Bird, who left the service in great shape and remains as deputy chief pilot. You are all warmly congratulated; as with ALS, you are a model service.

The future The Queensland Lifesaving College presents an opportunity for SLSQ to take its operation to the next level. What we saw in Poole, England at the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) facilities in 2013 opened our eyes to the value of a dedicated teaching and learning campus with live-in accommodation. I am convinced this is our way of the future, and would like to see this project pursued with more vigour. We develop our youth in leadership skills very well and have done so for over a decade. This is an important challenge into the future; to continue to teach our young lifesavers well, but to also make sure they have real opportunities to serve and to lead. Our wonderful officials, especially in surf sports, are moving steadily into the older demographic. Are we encouraging the participation of younger officials to gradually step up? Another ongoing challenge, not yet fully addressed.

CE O ’S R EP OR T

John Brennan OAM Chief Executive Officer

On behalf of Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ), I am proud and pleased to bring you our Annual Report for 2015/16.

with internal and external stakeholder groups, the strategic plan is designed to build upon SLSQ’s long and proud history of success while laying a strong foundation for sustained growth and development in all regions.

The success of our organisation in 2015/16 is the result of a collective effort from many people, all working tirelessly and passionately behind the scenes in the pursuit of our vision. With that in mind, I wish to thank the Board of Directors for their dedication this season and acknowledge the wonderful efforts of all staff members throughout the past 12 months and beyond. I also wish to acknowledge the outstanding efforts of our volunteer members who remain the backbone of this wonderful movement.

The past 12 months has also seen SLSQ formally adopt a new overarching vision of ‘Zero preventable deaths in Queensland public waters’ in a bid to expand our reach and solidify our position as the state’s peak authority on coastal and aquatic safety. Importantly, the introduction of this new vision statement is indicative of the evolving role that our lifesavers now play away from the beach. While safeguarding Queensland beachgoers is, and always will be, our core focus, it is important to recognise that this now comprises just one arm of our wide-reaching and increasingly diverse organisation. Our new vision seeks to capture that development and ensure SLSQ is also in a strong position to prevent drownings in other bodies of water including dams, rivers and lagoons.

SLSQ’s overarching vision is supported through the four strategic imperatives outlined below.

Committed to our community At its core, SLSQ remains a community-service organisation, and this season we continued to investigate all options in a bid to expand our reach along the coastline and offer even greater protection to Queensland beachgoers.

Sustainable for the future

SLSQ’s motto of ‘Vigilance and Service’ was personified by the efforts of our volunteer surf lifesavers and professional lifeguards. Collectively, in 2015/16, they performed 810,855 preventative actions, treated 20,895 first aid patients and directly saved the lives of 3,660 people via rescues. These statistics provide a clear and tangible reflection of the crucial role our men and women play along Queensland’s coastline.

Formally established in 1930, SLSQ is an organisation steeped in history and tradition. However, it is our ability to evolve and adapt to the ever-changing environments in which we operate that will ultimately ensure our future sustainability. As the number of visitors to Queensland beaches continues to increase, so too do our efforts to protect and safeguard swimmers. In 2015/16 SLSQ rolled out expanded services across the state, trialled new equipment, and built on the capacity of the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service. It is important to note these efforts would not have been possible without the financial support of the Queensland Government along with various councils and business partners.

Despite these efforts, it is important to note there were still 11 drownings on Queensland beaches, all occurring at unpatrolled locations and/or outside of patrol times. As far as SLSQ is concerned this is 11 too many and we remain committed to building on our existing operations in a bid to reduce this figure in the years ahead.

Connected to our people

In closing, I would like to personally acknowledge the tireless efforts and commitment of our outgoing board members, Ralph Devlin AM QC and Jack Noye. Since assuming the role of president in 2010, Ralph has overseen a historic period of growth and development for SLSQ, and his contribution to our organisation cannot be overstated. Similarly, Jack has served as an Independent Director on the board since 2002/03 and his guidance and dedication during this time has been nothing short of outstanding.

The recruitment and retention of volunteers and staff members alike remain a key priority for our organisation. This season saw the launch of SLSQ’s Pathways project, an exciting initiative designed to showcase the wide array of opportunities available within surf lifesaving. The project uses real volunteers, sharing real stories, and will to play an important role in member development. We continued to implement positive programs to increase and enhance the personal experience of our members and, in 2015/16, SLSQ successfully delivered a number of key initiatives including the Breaka Youth Excellence Program.

With the 2015/16 season officially coming a close, it’s only natural to reflect on the remarkable developments that have been collectively achieved by our organisation in the past 12 months. As we move forward into 2016/17, I am confident that we have the necessary structures and strategies in place to continue this success well into the future.

Additionally, it proved to be another strong year for surf sports, with significant growth and development achieved across both elite and grassroots competition. SLSQ’s pinnacle events, the Youth and Senior Championships, were successfully held at North Burleigh, while a raft of regional competitions also attracted strong numbers.

Effective in our business In 2015/16 SLSQ embarked on an exciting new chapter in the history of our organisation with the roll-out of a new five-year strategic plan, taking us through to 2020. The result of extensive consultation

*Elected to the Board at SLSQ’s AGM on 21 August 2015

The role of the Board and Committees SLSQ’s Board and Committee structure is critical to ensuring volunteer representation in key decisions and strategic planning. The various committees outlined on page 54 were established by the Board to assist SLSQ in the operational management of the volunteer members. Where necessary, the Board can establish special purpose committees and panels to oversee the management of projects, programs or other initiatives.

Code of conduct Nominees for Director positions are required to agree to SLSQ’s ‘Code of Conduct’ for Directors. Candidates must sign their acceptance to comply with this code on their nomination form. The Code of Conduct is contained within the Directors’ Handbook, which is provided to all Directors upon their election at the annual general meeting.

The primary function of the Board is to govern and provide leadership to SLSQ, members, affiliated branches and clubs in accordance with the aims and strategic objectives of SLSQ, its constitution, and the law. The Board is responsible for acting on all issues in accordance with SLSQ’s objectives. It operates for the benefit of SLSQ, its members and the wider Queensland community.

Independence At the commencement of each Board meeting, the Chair asks for Directors to declare conflicts of interest in any agenda items. The Council may elect up to two Independent Directors each year. Nominees for these positions shall be endorsed and recommended to the Council by the Board.

The role of Directors and management SLSQ’s CEO is tasked with managing the day-to-day business requirements of SLSQ, under the direction of the Board. The President is the nominated head of SLSQ and the SLSQ Board is responsible for the appointment of a CEO to manage and administer the organisation. The CEO is accountable to the Board and reports to the Board at each meeting. The CEO ensures the resolutions of the Board are properly and efficiently carried out, and transacts all business of SLSQ between Board meetings and general meetings of the Council.

Independent advice SLSQ’s Board and management are assisted in aspects of its operations with external advice.

HUMA N R ES OU R C ES Last season’s decision to establish Human Resources as a division of SLSQ in its own right continued to pay dividends in 2015/16. In fact, it proved to be another milestone year for the department as it worked towards completing a heavy workload of target achievements laid out in SLSQ’s Strategic Plan.

database of all HR-related materials and processes. The HRIS has minimised costs and increased efficiency, allowing staff in regional locations across the state to streamline their operations in line with all other branches.

As with previous years, the recruitment and retention of staff at all levels was a key focus area this season. A number of new roles were created in 2015/16 to assist with SLSQ’s continued growth and development and, in each case, the HR department worked closely with front-line managers to identify, appoint and induct employees with a diversified set of skills and experience.

Workplace Volunteer Program This season saw SLSQ launch its inaugural Workplace Volunteer Program to engage with local communities and provide additional manpower and support for key events, projects and activities. The program seeks to tap into the skillset of volunteers outside of Surf Life Saving, while providing a unique and valuable opportunity for people to get involved and give back to the movement.

A large focus this season was placed on ensuring that SLSQ’s core values were embedded into the day-to-day activities of all staff, and this was supported through changes to recruitment, induction, recognition and review procedures.

This was supported by the appointment of a dedicated Workplace Volunteer Coordinator to oversee the program, liaise with current and potential volunteers, and identify further opportunities moving forward.

Notable achievements throughout the year include:

In 2015/16, 35 volunteers were recruited, who collectively donated 695 hours of their time.

• Information sessions on bullying and harassment delivered to all staff members, including lifeguards; • A number of key policies were reviewed and updated;

Employee feedback

• SLSQ continued to identify and invest in our emerging leaders, with eight staff members completing the Ignite Leadership Training course; • The health, safety and wellbeing of all staff members continued to be priority areas for SLSQ, underpinned by the launch of the Employee Assistance Program; and

SLSQ remains committed to reviewing staff satisfaction and morale on a regular basis to help identify areas for improvement. This season saw SLSQ work closely with staff and internal stakeholder groups to review findings from its 2015 staff engagement survey. This resulted in a number of key initiatives being rolled out across the season, including:

• HR representatives conducted sessions at the Breaka Youth Excellence Program and The University of Queensland SLSQ Leadership Excellence Program.

• The development and implementation of an Email Charter to help facilitate effective communication across the organisation;

Performance reviews

• ‘Time Smart’ training was delivered to 51 employees to assist with time management;

Once again SLSQ conducted biannual performance reviews to provide managers and their team members with a valuable opportunity to have open and meaningful conversations about a variety of topics.

• Communications and Succession Planning workshops were rolled out;

This season saw SLSQ develop and implement a significantly updated review system, underpinned by a strong commitment to continuous improvement across all areas of the organisation. Importantly, the new review model seeks to ensure that each team member’s dayto-day role and performance are tangibly aligned with SLSQ’s core values, while also directly contributing to the overall vision of the organisation.

• The format and timing of regular management group meetings was altered based on the feedback of attendees; and

• Implementation of the Workplace Volunteer Policy;

• The Service and Recognition Awards policy was implemented to recognise the efforts and contributions of staff on key anniversary milestones.

This process has also seen SLSQ commence work on the development of an overarching skills matrix for the organisation. Upon completion, this will provide a high-level snapshot of organisational skills that is current and relevant, allowing the HR department to analyse and address any shortages or key gaps in specific competencies. Importantly, this process has already begun to lay the foundation for a wider review of all role descriptions and organisational development needs to ensure a more streamlined approach towards delivering on SLSQ’s Strategic Plan.

Human Resource Information System Six months of extensive development and stakeholder consultation came to fruition in 2015/16 with the successful implementation of SLSQ’s new Human Resource Information System (HRIS). Encompassing a wide range of functions, including payroll, the HRIS seeks to provide staff in all regions across the state with a central

CO MM U N I C AT I ON S Marketing and Partnerships

This year saw a number of changes to the SLSQ communications team, with media moving away from marketing to form a new department in its own right. While now operating separately, both departments work with the aim to increase brand awareness, ensure the long-term sustainability of the Surf Life Saving movement, and publicly position SLSQ as the state’s peak authority on coastal and aquatic safety, as per SLSQ’s Strategic Plan.

SLSQ’s marketing department provides ongoing support to clubs and branches, focusing on building and protecting the organisation’s iconic brand, providing marketing support across a broad range of state based programs, events and initiatives, and the development of all organisational print and digital brand material. In 2015/16 the team worked closely with SLSQ’s Membership team, the Australian Lifesaving Academy Queensland, the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service, and various other internal arms to develop branding strategies.

Media and Public Affairs SLSQ’s media and public affairs department plays a key role in delivering proactive and reactive messaging in all regions across the state. This season saw the appointment of a newly-created role, with a Media and Public Affairs Manager employed in February 2016 to head up the department. In 2015/16 SLSQ secured 4,943 stories across radio, print and television media. This coverage reached an audience of 151.8 million people with an approximate editorial value of $39.9 million.

This season saw the development and launch of the SLSQ Pathways Program, a membership-driven initiative designed to both increase member engagement and attract new members to the association. Other key projects included an audit and refresh of SLSQ’s website and print collateral, the formation of a strategic partnership with Airtrain Brisbane to assist in elevating SLSQ’s key safety messages with inbound travellers, and the development and release of the inaugural SLSQ Coast Safe Report.

Key achievements • SLSQ worked in conjunction with P4 Group to achieve significant media coverage of the 12th annual Surf Safe Appeal in September 2015. Across the two-week appeal, and leading up to the event, a total of 2,155,767 people were reached, with an editorial value of $783,237.50;

The University of Queensland This season marked the commencement of a historic partnership between SLSQ and The University of Queensland (UQ). Launched in front of the iconic Forgan Smith Building at UQ’s St Lucia campus in October 2015, the partnership at its core aims to support:

• The SLSQ Coast Safe Report was published for external stakeholders for the first time, with the SLSQ media team rolling out five concurrent media opportunities across the state to launch the new publication in conjunction with the SEQ start of season in September 2015;

• Surf Life Saving Queensland’s frontline services, through the bolstering of volunteer surf lifesaver patrol uniforms, surf sport competition rash vests, and co-branded SLSQ staff apparel;

• The Queensland Surf Life Saving Championships achieved significant metropolitan media coverage in March 2016, including live statewide weather crosses on two networks. Media reach increased by 70% from the previous year, with an audience in excess of 8.4 million people. Similar increases were recorded by SLSQ’s social media activities, increasing by 86% to hit over 279,000 people;

• The introduction of the UQ Secondary School Surf League, a state-wide surf sports participation program for school students aged 13-17 years, which includes the Championship trophy, the UQ Cup; • The rejuvenation of the UQ SLSQ Leadership Excellence Program, to be hosted annually at the UQ St Lucia campus;

• Despite a lower number of Summer Surf Girl entrants than previous years, media coverage of the fundraising and membership development program increased in both value and reach. The seven entrants achieved 79 stories, reaching an approximate audience of 1.6 million people, and appeared on a live weather cross with Network Ten;

• Increased support of SLSQ’s widely successful ‘On The Same Wave’ multicultural program, with a commitment to provide ongoing coast and public water safety to UQ’s international students; and

• SLSQ worked directly with past and current crew of the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service to roll-out media calls on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast to highlight and celebrate the service’s upcoming 40th anniversary in December 2016. This resulted in significant media coverage across the state; and

• An ongoing commitment as SLSQ’s official academic research and education partner, collaborating with SLSQ on ongoing research and development projects that aim to deliver world leading surf lifesaving and organisational best practices.

• A number of new initiatives were implemented in the digital communications realm, including the creation of an official SLSQ Snapchat account, debut of Facebook live videos, and refreshed membership electronic direct mail schedule and content plan.

3,660 LIVES SAVED


L I F E SAV I N G OP ER AT I ON S beachgoers and swimmers across the state. As outlined in SLSQ’s 2020 Strategic Plan, we are committed to reducing drowning and aquatic deaths across the next five years by:

Upon reflection, 2015/16 proved to be another busy and challenging season for SLSQ’s surf lifesavers and lifeguards as millions of people flocked to one of Queensland’s beautiful beaches and entrusted the ‘red and yellow army’ to keep them safe in the water.

• Implementing regional lifesaving plans that coordinate the efforts of lifesavers, lifeguards and other assets at blackspots and popular waterways;

The past 12 months saw periods of unseasonable weather including king tides and heavy swells, coupled with a significant increase of marine stingers in the north, all of which created difficult conditions at times for beachgoers and lifesavers alike. Importantly, this served to reinforce the importance of delivering effective and efficient surf safety strategies to the general public.

• Providing education and aquatic safety advice to the Queensland tourism industry; • Expanding the aquatic risk assessment program and blackspot reduction program;

It is pleasing to report that no lives were lost between SLSQ’s red and yellow flags this season. This is due, in no small part, to the dedication, training and courage of our volunteer members and lifeguards. In fact, throughout the season they combined to perform 810,855 preventative actions, treat 20,895 first aid patients and, most importantly, directly save the lives of 3,660 people through in-water rescues.

• Applying effective methods developed through research and expert partnerships; and • Providing public sector advisory services.

Tragically, despite these efforts, it is important to note there were still 11 beach-related coastal drownings on Queensland beaches this season. Unfortunately all of these occurred either outside of patrol times or at unpatrolled locations, which is disappointing to see. As far as SLSQ is concerned, even one drowning is one too many and, as we move forward into the new season and beyond, we will continue to implement key initiatives and programs to increase protection of

INCID E N T AN ALYS I S

B L AC K S P OT I N I T I AT I V ES In September 2015, following a review of coastal drowning data, SLSQ identified seven locations across Queensland as particularly high-risk coastal blackspots. This included five locations in SEQ, one in Wide Bay Capricorn and one in North Queensland. A concerted effort was made to improve aquatic safety at these blackspots across the season, which encompassed the following initiatives.

In total there were 28 coastal fatalities in Queensland this season. Of these, 11 were beach-related coastal drowning deaths. A review of incidents has shown: • There were no drownings between SLSQ’s red and yellow flags; • Four drownings were recorded on the Sunshine Coast (Maroochydore, Teewah, Kings and Warana Beaches), three on the Gold Coast (Southport Spit, Broadbeach, Southport Main Beach), two in North Queensland (Fitzroy Island and Palm Cove), one in Wide Bay Capricorn (Fraser Island) and one in the greater Brisbane area (Redcliffe);

Gold Coast – Surfers Paradise Tower 33-35 • A surveillance service was introduced at Surfers Paradise on weekends through to 7pm during the Christmas holidays to monitor beach usage and proactively discourage would-be swimmers from entering the water after dark;

• Ten of the victims were male;

• Local airlines, hotels and tourism agencies were provided with surf safety information and collateral in a bid to educate potential beachgoers; and

• Eight out of 11 victims lived in Australia. This differs from historical data which has seen international visitors overrepresented in Queensland’s drowning figures;

• Targeted community awareness initiatives were rolled out at Surfers Paradise during Schoolies Week and Chinese New Year.

• Summer and autumn were the most common seasons for coastal drowning deaths, with each recording four; • Six drownings occurred on the weekend, with five occurring on weekdays;

Gold Coast – Southport Spit to Southport SLSC • A roving surveillance was introduced from Sea World Resort to the Southport Spit each weekend over the Christmas holiday period to monitor beach usage and protect swimmers;

• Six drownings occurred less than one kilometre from a patrol location, while five drownings occurred more than 2.5 kilometres from a patrol service;

• Increased patrols were conducted by Waverunner 5, Waverunner 6 and Jet Rescue Boat 2; and

• Seven drownings occurred during regular patrol hours (8:00am to 5:00pm), with the remaining four occurring outside of these hours;

• Key tourism operators, including Sea World Resort, were provided with surf safety collateral.

• Six victims were swimming at the time of the incident, three were riding a surf craft, one was fishing, and one was riding an unpowered craft; and

North Queensland – Green Island • A portable and multilingual ‘No Swimming Area’ hazard sign was implemented at Beach 1 to proactively engage with, and warn, beachgoers;

• Three victims were aged between 30-39 years, making it the most common age bracket.

• SLSQ continued to fund a third full-time lifeguard to patrol Green Island 365 days per year;

Ten year drowning snapshot

• Standard beach safety signage with emergency marker locations was implemented; and

In the past ten years there have been 81 beach-related coastal drowning deaths in Queensland. The most common locations for drowning deaths during this period of time are outlined below: BEACH

Moreton Bay – North Stradbroke Island

• An extensive surf safety campaign was launched across Christmas, spearheaded by the production of a community service announcement aired state-wide on Channels 7, 9 and 10;

• Local transport and tourism operators were provided with updated surf safety collateral; • SLSQ worked to build closer relationships with key emergency service organisations on North Stradbroke Island; and

• A book of translated phrases, titled ‘Surf Speak’, was trialled at numerous beaches to ensure that lifesavers and lifeguards were able to communicate with international tourists in their primary language;

• SLSQ worked with Council to include surf safety messaging in its ‘Caring for Straddie’ campaign.

• Aerial patrols via SLSQ’s Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service were increased during peak periods including daily patrols during, and immediately after, Tropical Cyclone Winston;

Elliott River Mouth • A permanent camera and emergency response beacon was in place for this season;

• SLSQ’s inaugural Coast Safe Report was launched in September 2015 to analyse key surf safety and drowning trends;

• Beach access signage was reviewed to ensure it met Australian standards; • Worked with Elliott Heads SLSC to conduct roving patrols at Elliott River Mouth during periods of peak visitation; and

• Night operations training was regularly conducted on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts in conjunction with the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service and the Queensland Water Police;

• A lifeguard was stationed at Main Beach (Elliott Heads) to patrol on weekdays and Saturday mornings during the Eater, September and Christmas holiday periods.

• SLSQ continued to work closely with both local and state governments via its seat on the Local Disaster Management Group and State Disaster Coordination Group; • Dawn patrol services on the Gold Coast continued to operate 365 days a year, as did SLSQ’s SurfCom centre on the Sunshine Coast;

KEY O PE R ATI O N AL IN I TI ATI V E S

• Emergency response groups continue to strengthen and now operate in all regions across the state. In addition SLSQ continued to operate a dedicated phone number, available 24/7, for emergency service agencies to seek urgent assistance;

The past season also saw SLSQ continue to solidify its reputation as the state’s peak authority on coastal and aquatic safety, building upon services at all levels in a bid to increase protection for Queensland beachgoers and swimmers.

• SLSQ continued to utilise its network of coastal surveillance cameras, now totalling 36, at selected high-risk locations across the state;

Importantly, SLSQ remains committed to adopting innovative strategies, both on and off the beach, to break the drowning cycle. With that in mind, this season saw SLSQ implement a number of key initiatives to save lives along Queensland’s coastline. This included:

• A Marine Stinger Symposium was held in North Queensland in conjunction with James Cook University, bringing together industry experts; and

• The successful transition from analog to digital radios in SEQ and Wide Bay Capricorn, ensuring all clubs from Rainbow Bay to Hervey Bay are now included within SLSQ’s communications network;

• Early morning RWC patrols were rolled out at Kellys Beach across the Easter school holidays, while surveillance patrols on weekends and public holidays were implemented at Hervey Bay and Elliott Heads.

“I first joined surf lifesaving when I was 15-years-old at Umina SLSC in NSW. My father was the radio officer at the club and it seemed like a good way to row boats and stay fit. I was there for a few years, but then I moved to Queensland. I got back into surf lifesaving again when my daughter became a ‘flipper’ in 2000. I did my Bronze Medallion with other parents and realised how much I enjoyed the lifestyle and the friendships you make while giving something back to the community. Being named Queensland Surf Lifesaver of the Year was a huge honour for me, and I feel very humbled to be recognised in this way. If anyone’s considering becoming a surf lifesaver I’d definitely encourage them to give it a go. You will meet some amazing people, and the skills you learn will not only last a lifetime, but will help you both on and off the beach. It’s the people and the friendships I’ve made that I enjoy most about surf lifesaving. And, on those patrol days when the water is crystal clear and everything is going well, there’s no place I’d rather be.” - Clayton Webster, Pacific SLSC and Westpac Helicopter crewman 2014/15 Queensland Surf Lifesaver of the Year

LIVES SAVED


The Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service (WLRHS) remains a core lifesaving weapon for SLSQ across South East Queensland. It also plays a vital role in the achievement of several objectives laid out in the SLSQ Strategic Plan 2020, by preventing drowning and aquatic deaths, and expanding commercial service offerings.

• There was a continued focus on upskilling pilots and crew, with staff and volunteers successfully completing a variety of courses including water winch, hoist, and helicopter underwater escape training (HUET); • The service signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Queensland Fire and Rescue Service to provide ad-hoc transportation of firefighters and equipment along the coastal strip of the Sunshine Coast; and

One of the oldest community-based helicopter rescue services in the world, the WLRHS has been operating in Queensland for almost four decades. With a highly-trained team of skilled men and women, encompassing experienced pilots, professional staff and volunteer members, the service exists for one reason: to save lives.

• The WLRHS continued to work closely with Emergency Management Queensland, the Queensland Police Service, and the Australian Maritime Safety Authority to provide search and rescue in times of need.

From humble beginnings in 1976, today the WLRHS is a full-time service operating 365 days a year, providing coastal surveillance and search and rescue support to surf lifesavers, lifeguards and other emergency service agencies as required. Across the 2015/16 season, SLSQ’s two helicopters – Lifesaver 45 and Lifesaver 46 – combined to perform 401 surf patrols, 86 preventative actions and directly save 17 lives in the process.

PolAir The relationships between the Queensland Police Service (QPS) and the WLRHS grew from strength to strength across the past 12 months. SLSQ has successfully operated the QPS helicopters over the past four years, beginning with PolAir 1 (Gold Coast) in September 2012, and PolAir 2 (Brisbane) since 2014/15. This season, we extended this relationship with the QPS and continued to broaden our core service by providing for safer communities, ultimately saving lives across the state.

• An inaugural Hangar Open Day was held on the Gold Coast to celebrate the service’s 40th anniversary, attracting more than 500 people; • Additional and extended surf patrols were conducted to cover South East Queensland when shark nets were removed due to powerful surf conditions; • The service continues to experience strong growth. In 2015/16, 17 professional staff were employed including seven pilots, four full-time aircrew and six lifeguards. The service also encompassed 26 trained volunteer lifesavers (nine aircrew and 17 rescue crew);

In June 2016, chief pilot Paul Gibson was awarded a District Officer Certificate from QPS from his piloting role in a PolAir job in 2015, recognising that he has exceeded expectations in the execution of duty providing assistance to QPS.

1,536 LIVES SAVED BY ALSQ LIFEGUARDS


The Australian Lifeguard Service Queensland (ALSQ) is the professional lifeguard arm of SLSQ and provides crucial aquatic safety support to governments and councils across the state. The largest provider of professional lifeguard services in Queensland, ALSQ operates at more than 80 waterways across the state including beaches, lagoons and creeks. Many of these sites are patrolled 365 days of the year.

• The Seadoo Spark was introduced to ALSQ’s fleet, providing lifeguards with a lighter, compact and more efficient rescue water craft for patrol, search and rescue scenarios; • Mid-week patrols were rolled out at Tallebudgera Creek and the Southport Broadwater enclosure during the 2015/16 patrol season; • A roving patrol service was continued at Noosa North Shore, Double Island Point and Moreton Island across all school holiday periods;

A leader in aquatic and coastal safety, ALSQ sets an international benchmark through nationally-accredited training, highly-skilled and experienced staff, and continued best practice operations. Each year Queensland’s professional lifeguards are required to undertake regular fitness testing and professional development to ensure they maintain and enhance their patrol and beach management capabilities.

• ALSQ continued to provide a Safety Ambassador Service at South Bank Parklands to proactively engage with parents and encourage them to keep a close eye on their children while in the water;

In 2015/16 ALSQ was comprised of 63 permanent lifeguards and an additional 338 casual employees. Collectively, the team boasted 1,642 collective years of experience between them and more than 1.5 million career patrol hours.

• All patrol hours were standardised across the Sunshine Coast Council, ensuring uniformity from beach to beach; • Lifeguards were tasked to provide first aid and water safety services at the 2016 Queensland and Australian Surf Life Saving Championships;

This season ALSQ lifeguards performed 16,284 first aid treatments, 700,567 preventative actions and saved 1,536 lives.

• SLSQ renewed its contract with the Townsville City Council, with the partnership having now operated for 25 years;

Key achievements and developments

• ALSQ continued to employ the services of a second and third full-time lifeguard on Green Island in North Queensland, significantly boosting protection for beachgoers all year round;

In 2015/16 ALSQ continued to build upon its services at all levels, working closely with other lifesaving operations to significantly increase safety along Queensland’s coastline. Key achievements and developments from across the past 12 months include:

• A winter service was continued at Agnes Water in 2015, with weekends patrolled during the winter months of 2016;

• In December 2015, ALSQ introduced a new uniform for lifeguards in all regions across the state. While maintaining the iconic red and yellow colouring that has become synonymous with the lifesaving movement, the new uniforms seek to build upon the ALS brand in Queensland, while ensuring that lifeguards can easily be identified by beachgoers as professionals in surf safety;

• ALSQ continued to integrate its services with the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service, with six lifeguards now qualified crewmen; and • 41 lifeguards completed the Silver Medallion Aquatic Rescue course.

“I’ve been a lifeguard since September 2007, it’s actually the only job I’ve had. Every day I jump out of bed and I just love going down to the beach in the morning. The health and fitness aspect is a really big thing for me as well. We’re never going to be millionaires, but we’ve got a million-dollar lifestyle and million-dollar views each day on the job. We’re kept really busy at Maroochydore, and it’s definitely getting busier with all of the CBD development that’s taking place. At one point over summer we conducted 18 rescues over three days. It was fairly unusual in that most of these occurred down towards the river, but all it takes is a bad outgoing tide and it can turn into quite a hotspot, particularly for kite-surfers if the wind is up as well. In addition to my regular lifeguard duties, I’m also part of the crew at the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service. It’s a great opportunity for me but, if you look at the bigger picture, it’s also a great avenue for lifeguards, giving them an opportunity to upskill and something to aspire towards. I’d like to think the general public and everyday beachgoers can see the benefit as well. We have a helicopter there on call, every day of the year, and that’s pretty special and something that wasn’t the case a few years ago.” - Beau Farrell Senior Lifeguard – Maroochydore

MULTICULTURAL PARTICIPANTS IN SLSQ’S ON THE SAME WAVE PROGRAM


Off the beach, SLSQ continues to work hard in the community to educate potential beachgoers, change behaviours and, ultimately, save lives and prevent drownings along Queensland’s coastline. This season SLSQ directly engaged with 720,783 potential beachgoers, educating them about coastal safety and equipping them with lifelong and potentially lifesaving skills.

SLSQ thanks the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Multicultural Affairs, and The University of Queensland, for their support of this initiative.

Little Lifesavers Established in 1993, the award-winning Little Lifesavers program has developed into one of SLSQ’s most popular water safety initiatives. This year, 636 young children were introduced to the basics of surf and aquatic safety as part of the program. Growing from strength to strength, the program broke records this season, recording more than 100 participants at a South Bank session for the first time in its history.

Each year SLSQ reviews its educational programs and introduces new initiatives to increase its reach across the state. New community awareness developments this season included: • Airport greeting services were launched in Cairns and on the Sunshine Coast to directly engage with potential beachgoers flying into Queensland during peak periods;

SLSQ acknowledges the support of the South Bank Corporation, Brisbane City Council, Redland City Council, Cairns Regional Council, Bundaberg Regional Council, Mackay Regional Council, Sunshine Coast Council and the Council of the City of Gold Coast. Thank you to program partner Star Outdoor for its support.

• The award-winning Little Lifesavers program was expanded to include sessions on the Sunshine Coast, while a multicultural version of the program was held in Townsville; • A ‘Don’t Drink and Swim’ campaign was launched, with educational posters and coasters distributed to more than 450 pubs and night clubs;

Breaka Beach to Bush

• An inaugural Beach Safe Seniors program was launched;

Once again SLSQ partnered with Breaka to roll out the iconic Beach to Bush program, delivering vital water safety messages to school children in regional and rural areas of Queensland. Run in Queensland for more than 15 years, the program has developed into one of Australia’s largest surf safety initiatives. This season a total of 14,116 school children were educated through 75 presentations.

• SLSQ helped The University of Queensland promote safe swimming practices at its Water Safety Week and Queensland Week activations; • A surf safety campaign was launched across Christmas, spearheaded by the production of a community service announcement aired state-wide on television; • More than 100 international tour guides were educated about surf safety leading into Chinese New Year, while SLSQ also engaged with Asian tourists at Cairns Airport and Surfers Paradise leading into the holiday; and

SLSQ acknowledges Breaka for its continued support of this initiative.

• Surf safety information was distributed to more than 800 hotels, motels and accommodation providers across South East Queensland.

The Beach Safe Schools Program was developed to educate primary school students about surf safety, dangerous marine creatures, and the importance of sun safety. The initiative seeks to provide students with strategies to manage their own risk at the beach, while providing them with potentially lifesaving skills. This season the program directly educated 32,683 students.

Queensland Health Beach Safe Schools Program

KEY ED UCAT I O N AL P R O G R AMS

SLSQ thanks Queensland Health for its ongoing support of this crucial program.

Gold Coast Beach Safe Program Every week thousands of people from across Australia and the world fly into the Gold Coast to visit one of its iconic beaches. With that in mind, the Gold Coast Beach Safe Program sees surf lifesavers greet passengers and provide them with beach safety information as soon as they step off the plane. This year 196,947 potential beachgoers were educated via the program, which is sponsored by Harbour Town Shopping Centre and supported by Gold Coast Airport, Gold Coast Cabs, and the Council of the City of Gold Coast.

Airport welcoming services Following the success of SLSQ’s airport service on the Gold Coast, this season saw SLSQ expand the initiative to include Cairns and the Sunshine Coast. The program saw qualified lifesavers provide multilingual surf safety information in 15 languages, encompassing patrol times, patrol hours, beach flags and sun safety.

On The Same Wave Each year SLSQ’s On The Same Wave program sees surf lifesavers directly engage with migrants, refugees and people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds to educate them about surf safety. In 2015/16 lifesavers visited a number of schools, community groups and multicultural events where they distributed beach safety information in more than 25 languages. In 2015/16 the program educated 57,450 potential beachgoers.

Collectively, the programs provided 28,920 domestic and international tourists with crucial surf safety information. SLSQ acknowledges the support of the Sunshine Coast Airport and Cairns Airport for their support of these important initiatives.

ATHLETES AT SLSQ CHAMPIONSHIP EVENTS


QU EEN S L A N D C H A M P I ON S H I P EV ENT S

The past 12 months saw thousands of competitors from all corners of Queensland line up to compete in SLSQ’s diverse sporting events. From nippers right up to professional ironmen and ironwomen, our members had the opportunity to participate in a diverse range of events, from local and branch-run carnivals through to state and national championships.

Queensland IRB Championships

Importantly, sport remains one of the core foundations of the surf lifesaving movement. Unlike other codes, the underlying purpose of our sporting competition is to improve lifesaving skills, assist with the recruitment and retention of volunteers and, ultimately, contribute to saving lives on Queensland beaches.

More than 300 surf lifesavers converged on Mooloolaba Beach across two days from 4-5 July for the 2015 Queensland Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) Championships. Reigning champions North Burleigh (103 points) successfully defended their title ahead of Kawana Waters (63 points) and Point Lookout (38 points).

As part of the 2020 Strategic Plan, we remain committed to developing, delivering and continuously monitoring the provision of suitable surf sport programs to engage with SLSQ’s diverse membership. With that in mind, in 2015/16 there was a renewed focus on providing a range of competitive opportunities for all lifesavers regardless of age and location. Once again, increasing regional participation was a key priority area for SLSQ, as was boosting grassroots development.

Queensland Pool Rescue Championships The 2015 Queensland Pool Rescue Championships were held across two days from 25-26 July at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre. In total, 415 athletes lined up to compete, representing an increase of 35% compared to last season. Currumbin (520 points) took out the event ahead of Maroochydore (350.5 points), with Northcliffe and Sunshine Beach tied for third place on 282 points.

SLSQ wishes to thank the Queensland Government (Sport and Recreation Services) for its vital support of our sporting programs, and its support of Queensland clubs via the ‘Get in the Game’ initiative.

Queensland Endurance Championships More than 450 athletes lined up to compete at the Queensland Endurance Championships at Tweed Heads and Coolangatta on 19 September 2015. Noosa (237 points) reigned supreme, ahead of Northcliffe (201 points) and Alexandra Headland (198 points).

Laerdal Queensland Surf Rescue Championships A total of 180 competitors converged on Mermaid Beach across two days from 19-21 February, putting their patrol skills to the ultimate test at the 2016 Laerdal Queensland Surf Rescue Championships. Sunshine Coast club Alexandra Headland (70 points) took home the title, narrowly edging out Maroochydore (69 points) and Northcliffe (66 points).

Queensland Board Riding Championships The Queensland Board Riding Championships saw 177 competitors line up at Tweed Heads and Coolangatta across two days of action from 20-21 February. Alexandra Headland (113 points) comfortably took the top honours ahead of Currumbin (53 points) and host club Tweed Heads and Coolangatta (48 points).

Queensland Youth Surf Life Saving Championships The Queensland Youth Surf Life Saving Championships were held across three days at North Burleigh on the Gold Coast from 18-20 March 2016. A total of 1,730 young lifesavers lined up to compete at the event, representing a 5% increase when compared to last year. Sunshine Coast’s Maroochydore (283 points) claimed back-to-back titles, coming from 90 points behind on the final day of competition to take out the event ahead of Alexandra Headland (240 points) and Northcliffe (216 points).

Queensland Surf Life Saving Championships A total of 1,697 lifesavers lined up at the Queensland Surf Life Saving Championships at North Burleigh from 18-20 March 2016, representing a 9% increase in competitor numbers when compared to last year. Northcliffe (479 points) extended its winning run to 12 consecutive years, taking out the event ahead of Gold Coast rivals

Currumbin (306 points) and Kurrawa (280 points). Meanwhile, in the masters’ competition, it was Alexandra Headland (454 points) who took the overall honours ahead of Noosa Heads (313 points) and North Burleigh (299 points).

This year SLSQ partnered with UQ to deliver the Secondary School Surf League. Five regional competitions were held across the season, attracting a total of 760 competitors. This culminated in the UQ Secondary Schools Surf League Championships at North Burleigh on 10 March 2016, attracting a field of 112 participants. Assisi Catholic College took home the overall honours, winning the inaugural UQ Cup. SLSQ thanks The University of Queensland for its support of this program.

OTHE R E V E NTS Summer of Surf Series

Interbranch Championships

SLSQ worked in consultation with Castle Media and SLSA to roll out three rounds of the second annual Summer of Surf Series in Queensland. This year’s series featured legs at Kurrawa, Noosa Heads and Alexandra Headland. Highlights from these rounds were broadcast as part of the televised series on Fox Sports, with a total of 134,059 unique viewers tuning in to watch.

The Interbranch Championships were held on the Sunshine Coast across two days from 27-28 November. Making the most of local conditions, the Sunshine Coast Branch team claimed overall honours for the eighth consecutive year, ahead of the South Coast Branch and Queensland Country.

Interstate Championships SLSA’s Interstate Championships provide local athletes with an opportunity to represent Queensland in elite competition as part of the Cyclones team. The Championships are contested across ocean, surf boats, IRB and pool rescue competition. In August 2015, the Queensland Cyclones won the Pool Rescue Interstate Championships to secure the 2014/15 Alan B Whelpton AO Perpetual Shield as the best performing state ahead of New South Wales. In 2015/16, the Cyclones won the ocean event before finishing third in the surf boats, with IRB and pool events still to determine the overall winner.

S P OR T S DEV ELOP M EN T SLSQ continues to focus on the development of surf sports at all levels, from elite competition to grassroots participation.

Coaches and officials development In 2015/16 SLSQ rolled out a variety of training and development opportunities for coaches, athletes and officials. This included:

Fastest Man on Sand

• Fifteen officials courses were delivered this season, with 172 participants completing the Level 1 course and five completing the Level 2. A further 94 officials were reaccredited during the year; and

SLSQ’s Fastest Man on Sand series saw Queensland’s top beach sprinters line up across three rounds of action, with races held at Kurrawa, Coolangatta and Mooloolaba. In total 746 athletes competed across the series, showcasing their talents in beach sprints, flags and relays.

• The new online coaching accreditation system proved popular, with 20 people nominating for the Foundation course and a further 85 nominating for the Development course.

Ocean Roar IRB Series SLSQ’s Ocean Roar IRB series saw Queensland’s top crews line up across four rounds this season, with events held at Miami Beach, Burleigh, Bribie Island and Metropolitan Caloundra. North Burleigh took out this year’s series ahead of Point Lookout and Kurrawa.

Surf boat competition Surf boat competition continues to grow in strength across Queensland, with many crews regularly competing in the Navy Surf Boat and Queensland Cup series. A number of crews also ventured interstate to compete, acquitting themselves well against crews from around the country in the ASRL Open, Ocean Thunder and other key carnivals.

REGION AL E V E NTS

Pool rescue competition North Australian Championships

Pool rescue competition continues to grow in both size and stature across Queensland, with a number of events and development clinics held in this discipline. As with previous years, a pool rescue competition was held as part of the North Australian Championships, and a Queensland Country High Performance Pool Rescue Squad was named to compete at the Australian Pool Rescue Championships, winning three gold, seven silver and four bronze medals.

A total of 449 competitors hit the surf and sand in Mackay for the 2015 North Australian Championships across three days of action (30 October – 1 November).

SLSQ’s volunteers are the lifeblood of the organisation, with their acts of selfless commitment and bravery providing an invaluable service to the community. As per SLSQ’s 2020 Strategic Plan, key focus areas for the year ahead include continuing to work on the Membership Sustainability Projects.

Junior Activities

It is noted that SLSQ membership declined 2% over the past season, from 30,653 to 30,129 in 2015/16.

Fostering the skills and progression of junior lifesavers is imperative, as they are the key to SLSQ’s successful future. Junior members represent the largest membership category at 33%. SLSQ experienced decline of 2% in this area during 2015/16.

Healthy membership is the cornerstone of any successful volunteer organisation, and the need to attract new members and nurture existing volunteers is paramount to the ongoing viability of SLSQ.

SLSQ is committed to providing safe, quality and age-appropriate activities to further each junior member’s development. The State Junior Activities Advisory Panel, which plays an active role in providing recommendations regarding the conduct and development of Junior Activities across the state, is working on major plans for the next 12 months to improve engagement with younger members.

With a number of successful recruitment and retention campaigns facilitated in 2015/16, membership development will continue to be a key focus for the organisation in the year ahead. SLSQ works closely with its stakeholders, including clubs and committees, operational divisions and regional staff, to ensure the organisation is meeting the diverse needs of volunteers. It is also working on strategies to engage with inactive and prospective members to grow its volunteer base, such as encouraging nipper parents to play an active role.

Breaka Under-14 Junior Surf Lifesaver of the Year In March 2016, Surfers Paradise’s Chloe Boland was formally recognised as Queensland’s top nipper, taking out this season’s Breaka Under-14 Junior Surf Lifesaver of the Year award. Five other nominees from across the state were also shortlisted for the award, which remains the highest individual accolade for Queensland’s young surf lifesavers.

PAT H WAYS

Congratulations to the other finalists, including George Taifalos (North Queensland), William Muscat (North Barrier), Zachary Paskin (Wide Bay Capricorn), Madison Douglas (Sunshine Coast), and Gemma Glenny (Point Danger).

A highlight of 2015/16 was the launch of the Pathways project, which aimed to provide an interactive online platform for both internal and external recruitment, retention, recognition and the engagement of members. It seeks to provide a clear, centralised overview of the diverse range of roles, opportunities and career pathways available across all facets of Surf Life Saving.

Breaka Youth Excellence Program Held on 1-3 April 2016, some of Queensland’s best and brightest young surf lifesavers participated in the annual Breaka Youth Excellence Program at Yandina.

As well as a sleek, sophisticated new website (lifesavingpathways. com.au), featuring stunning imagery and ambassador profile videos, the program was supported by print collateral including posters and flyers, which will support clubs and staff with recruitment collateral for the coming season.

Almost 80 participants, aged 15-17, experienced a weekend of activities focused on leadership, team building, improving selfconfidence, mentoring, communication, negotiating, and problem

“In 2010 I made the best decision of my life and decided to become a proud member of the surf lifesaving community. I joined Surfers Paradise SLSC as an under-11 nipper and instantly developed a passion for it. I loved everything about nippers; the surf safety and awareness, the friendly competition but, most of all, I loved the sense of a community within the club. One of the many highlights of my career as a surf lifesaver occurred in October 2015 when I was the primary rescuer in a surf incident at Surfers Paradise. Due to good mentoring I had received, and the help of other patrol members, I was able to carry out this rescue through to a successful completion. As a result of this, I was one of the patrol members lucky enough to receive the nomination for the award of Rescue of the Month. Being part of the surf lifesaving community is such a great privilege and I would strongly encourage anyone to join.” - Chloe Boland, Surfers Paradise SLSC Chloe was named SLSQ’s Breaka Under-14 Junior Surf Lifesaver of the Year for 2015/16. She is the first member of Surfers Paradise SLSC to receive the prestigious honour.

As proposed in 2014/15 by the SLSQ Membership Services Committee, this season saw the establishment of the State Youth Advisory Panel. A two-year trial of the panel has now commenced.

To maintain compliance with government legislation and SLSA’s policies, regular reviews of SLSQ’s strategies, policies and practices are prioritised to safeguard all members regardless of age, location, gender, and ethnicity.

M E MB E R SHI P SU STAINA BI LI TY PR O J EC T

Throughout the year, SLSQ continued to advocate the Child Youth Risk Management Strategy within clubs and branches to operate in line with the Working With Children (Risk Management and Screening) Act 2000. SLSQ also adheres to SLSA’s Member Protection Policy updated in 2014, and works closely with the Public Safety Business Agency on Blue Cards and ‘working with children checks’.

Work on the SLSQ Membership Sustainability Project has continued in 2015/16. The following initiatives have been developed and rolled out to clubs:

The Peer Support Program is also instrumental in protecting members, particularly those on the front line. In 2015/16 there were a total of 55 peer support officers located around the state, providing psychological first aid during times of need, trauma or distress. 37 separate cases were followed up between September 2015 and May 2016.

• Family Participation Program – educating the family of junior surf lifesaving members about opportunities available to them, with the aim to increase their participation in their movement and provide more support to clubs; • Active Member Management Project– providing a support tool (Patrol Gap Calculator) for clubs to more efficiently develop their human resources in order to meet their patrol service contracts and obligations, while also reducing impacts on volunteers. This season has seen a 100% participation rate from clubs in Point Danger Branch, allowing each club to conduct a training needs analysis and a branch training calendar to be developed for the coming season as per club demand; and

FU T U R E K EY FOC U S A R EA S • Membership Sustainability Projects, including primary focus on Club Development Project; • Junior Development Review; • Completion of Recognition Review and implementation of outcomes for the next season; and

• Work has also begun on the Member Development Project and Club Development Project for the 2016/17 season.

• Increased junior club visits.

M EM B ER EDU C AT I ON

Surf Life Saving Queensland remains focused on providing educational programs for its members and the community as a significant step to improve safety through knowledge, with the overall aim to reduce drownings. The SLSQ 2020 Strategic Plan outlines this as expanding the organisation’s commercial service offering and providing opportunities for member development.

SLSQ remains committed to delivering effective and efficient member education to ensure the future sustainability of the movement. In 2015/16 SLSQ’s regional Education Development Coordinators settled into their roles across the North Barrier, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast regions, providing on-the-ground support to branches and clubs. These coordinators work closely with club trainers and assessors across the season to ensure members’ training needs are met.

The Australian Lifesaving Academy Queensland (ALAQ) is the trading name for SLSQ as a registered training organisation, set up to deliver lifesaving education to its members and the wider community.

PUBLI C E D UCAT I O N

Highlights and key achievements • 24% increase in participation in emergency care training throughout the past 12 months, including First Aid, CPR and Advanced Resuscitation;

ALAQ provides a valuable service to the community through its first aid and CPR courses. Its goal is to bring more than a century of surf lifesaving experience from the beach to the home, school or workplace. SLSQ believes these lifesaving skills can be applied to many different environments and circumstances.

• Introduction of new Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) and Observers Award courses and paperwork, including significant style changes;

A range of emergency care and aquatic rescue training courses are offered through flexible, quality, community-focused programs aimed at making Queensland a safer state. In recent years ALAQ has successfully applied its training to a variety of industries, including education, sport and recreation, retail, finance, construction, mining, government, and medical.

• Rewriting and delivery of the Training Officers course across the state, with overwhelming positive feedback;

Importantly, all trainers and assessors of ALAQ are qualified surf lifesavers and all profits are invested directly back into supporting beach safety initiatives across the state.

• The organisation continues to provide representation within key industry bodies, and an SLSQ representative currently sits as the secretary of the Australian Resuscitation Council – Queensland Branch;

Highlights and key achievements

• Worked with external contractors on the development of a Moodle-based e-learning platform, operational on all devices, to be released for the 16/17 season’s skills maintenance assessments; and

• Dedicated Education Development Coordinators continue to assist branches and clubs in North Barrier, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast regions with their training and development needs;

• A dedicated Business Development Executive has been employed for the past 12 months, placing ALAQ top-of-mind with commercial clients;

• Development of pre-learning courses and videos available online, including First Aid, Advanced Resuscitation and Observers Awards.

• ALAQ has reported strong growth in the number of people trained during the past two years, with an increase in commercial sales of almost 300%;

Future training delivery

• The number of key clients throughout Queensland has grown significantly, with a continued focus of expansion outside of South East Queensland, up to North Queensland and out west;

• A key priority for the coming year is to work with an external consultant and internal staff to implement a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment package (moving from current TAE40110 to TAE40116); and

• A new ALAQ business plan details a significant projection of increased turnover by 2020;

• Working with SLSA on new resources and protocols for surf lifesavers following significant changes to the Australian Resuscitation Council’s guidelines, notably the discontinued use of semi-rigid collars for the management of suspected spinal patients.

• Continued development of online sale of first aid equipment and defibrillators as a revenue stream; • Extension and strengthening of existing Memorandums of Understanding for provision of training; • Visits to towns in the state’s south-west with Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, providing training to auxiliary and permanent firefighters; and • ALAQ continued to assume responsibility for emergency care training provided to club members, following overwhelming success of the first year and positive feedback from branches and clubs.

“While travelling to work on the train, an unfortunate incident involving one of my fellow passengers required me to jump into action and put my recently honed first aid learning into action. A young businessman around 35 years of age had suddenly dropped to the floor motionless. I saw this happen and, without hesitation, jumped from my seat and arrived speedily at his side to determine the nature of the situation and how best I could help him. He was breathing, but unconscious, so I placed him in the recovery position and asked another passenger to press the Emergency Button while I continued to check his mouth for any obstructions. I can’t believe how quickly I responded to the situation without any hesitation. I would like to thank you for the great training that undoubtedly enabled me to attend to this incident.� - Rose Edgar Rose completed first aid training with the Australian Lifesaving Academy Queensland in April 2016, less than a week before this incident occurred.

$337,115 RAISED BY 7 SUMMER SURF GIRL PARTICIPANTS

$355,000 RAISED THROUGH THE SURF SAFE APPEAL


Heli Ball

The generosity of the Queensland community continued to shine through this season as the state dug deep on several occasions to help our cause. In 2015/16 SLSQ embarked on a number of key programs and events in a bid to raise much-needed funds for the surf lifesaving movement, ensuring our volunteers have the equipment, training and resources to protect Queenslanders. SLSQ is extremely appreciative of the Queensland community and our business partners for their continued support.

SLSQ’s inaugural Heli Ball was held at Jupiters Gold Coast on Saturday, 31 October 2015. A total of 210 guests attended the evening, raising vital funds and awareness for SLSQ’s Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service. SLSQ acknowledges the support of Charlie Schwerkolt and Team 18, Jupiters Gold Coast, MiiHome, Jazz Cleaning, Franklin Villa, BMW Brisbane, Sofitel Brisbane, RACV Royal Pines, Helibuz, Momentoes, Alex Glenn and the Brisbane Broncos, Brisbane Lions, Kevin Weldon AM and Dr Paul Scully-Power AM.

Summer Surf Girl Now in its 52nd year, the Summer Surf Girl program has developed into one of SLSQ’s largest club-based fundraising and member development initiatives, having injected more than $15.7 million back into the lifesaving movement since its inception. This year seven female lifesavers participated in the program, embarking on a nine month campaign to raise funds and spread the surf safety message. A total of $337,115.94 was raised during this year’s program.

Castrol Edge Gold Coast 600 Once again SLSQ was fortunate to be named as the official beneficiary of the Castrol Edge Gold Coast 600. The event was held across three days from 23-25 October 2015, injecting vital funds back into the surf lifesaving movement.

Point Lookout’s Anne-Marie Westby capped off a year to remember, named this year’s Summer Surf Girl and also receiving the award for Highest Fundraiser after raising a total of $76,496.16. Townsville Picnic Bay’s Shannon Morgan was named Runner-Up and, rounding out the presentations, Etty Bay’s Micaela Crompton received the Innovation Award.

The event also saw the iconic ‘swim between the flags’ message receive a high-octane makeover, with the launch of SLSQ’s charity partnership with Team 18. Team 18 literally drove home the surf safety message across the race, with the car’s regular paintwork making way for a wave of red and yellow messaging to raise awareness and funds for surf lifesaving.

SLSQ thanks its valued partner, Jupiters Gold Coast, for its continued support and Zupps Mount Gravatt for their donation of the program’s major prize, a Holden Spark. SLSQ also acknowledges its other program supporters including Engine, Oaks Hotels & Resorts, Erin Forbes Makeup Artistry, Hair’s Hare, Screen Offset Printing and Etiquette & Manners Australia. Special thanks are also extended to this year’s judging panel of George Hill ESM, Megan Crockford and Lainey Loneragan.

SLSQ thanks V8 Supercars Australia for its continued support, along with Charlie Schwerkolt and Team 18.

Segenhoe presents SLSQ Race Day It was a case of surf meets turf on Saturday, 12 December 2015, when SLSQ partnered with Segenhoe for the inaugural SLSQ Race Day at the Gold Coast Turf Club. In addition to raising vital funds for SLSQ, the day also served to increase engagement with the Gold Coast community and spread the surf safety message. SLSQ thanks Segenhoe for its support of this new initiative.

Surf Safe Appeal A sea of red and yellow washed over Queensland last year for SLSQ’s annual Surf Safe Appeal. Now in its 12th year, the Appeal is one of SLSQ’s largest fundraising drives and helps ensure that our volunteer members have the training and resources to save lives on Queensland beaches.

T H E S U R F L I FE S AV I N G FOU N DAT I ON

Thousands of lifesavers from 49 clubs participated in the Appeal, doorknocking and brandishing collection tins across two weeks from 31 August to 13 September 2015. For the first time a number of iconic landmarks, including Brisbane’s Story Bridge, were lit up in red and yellow to support the initiative. The Queensland Government generously donated $50,000 to officially launch the Appeal, and this was soon followed by donations of cash and equipment valued at more than $120,000 from corporate partners. In total, more than $355,000 was raised for Queensland surf life saving clubs.

SLSQ continues to receive crucial support from Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) and the Surf Life Saving Foundation (SLSF) when it comes to raising funds for clubs and beach safety services across the state. In particular, the SLSF manages and facilitates a number of key initiatives for SLSQ including Guardians of the Surf, workplace giving, bequests, grant seeking and the lotteries program. SLSQ is grateful for their ongoing support, which continues to put vital equipment on our beaches and train Queensland’s volunteer surf lifesavers.

SLSQ thanks Network Ten for their media support of the Appeal, in addition to the Queensland Government and our corporate partners including Jupiters Gold Coast, Brisbane Airport Corporation, Transit Australia Group and AirTrain.

“My family and I have been members of Point Lookout SLSC for 18 years, and the club has always been a huge influence on my life. Fundraising is such an important part of Point Lookout’s agenda and my family has always been very active and enthusiastic about these activities, so I have grown up to appreciate and love the feeling of working and achieving for such a great cause. I think the Summer Surf Girl program is amazing, not just to give back to your surf club but also on a personal development side. It has engaged so many women in Surf Life Saving across the years and it improves such a variety of skills that you can use not just in your surf lifesaving career but also for general life skills. In my view, the best thing about surf lifesaving is the people who you meet along the way. Surf lifesaving is an industry in which people of all walks of life can come together. Being in a surf club enables you to meet people who you wouldn’t normally meet and have friends of many different ages and backgrounds. It takes someone very unique and special to be a part of Surf Life Saving. I feel very privileged to be a part of an organisation with such passionate people.” - Anne-Marie Westby, Point Lookout SLSC Anne-Marie was named SLSQ’s 2016 Summer Surf Girl and Highest Fundraiser after raising more than $76,000 for her surf club.
