Lifesaving event competitions highlight the skills involved in rescue, resuscitation and first aid. An important part of competition is the development of skills that will assist members while performing patrolling duties. The focus of the events are ‘real’ lifesaving skills. Competitors do not have to be elite athletes, just dedicated lifesavers. Most of the Lifesaving events have an emphasis on team work in stressful situations.
Lifesaving events include Champion Patrol, Champion Lifesaver, First Aid Competition, R&R, Tube Rescue and Belt Race.
