Surf Lifeguards around the country are bracing themselves for what could be the busiest lifesaving season on record as New Zealanders face a summer without the option of overseas holidays. Covid-19 travel restrictions mean many Kiwis will be planning "staycations" this summer and SLSNZ volunteer Surf Lifeguards are encouraging beachgoers to familiarise themselves with key safety messages. SLSNZ Chief Executive, Paul Dalton, says the charity's volunteer Surf Lifeguards are passionate, highly-skilled individuals who pride themselves on keeping people safe at the beach. However, he cautions that it's not possible for Surf Lifeguards to be everywhere at once.
