Surf lifesavers and lifeguards use flags to indicate the safest swimming areas for the beach going public. To stay safe, remember the "FLAGS."


F Find the flags and swim between them. The red and yellow flags represent the area patrolled by lifesavers and lifeguards. They mark the safest   place to swim at the beach.

L Look at the safety signs. The safety signs help you identify potential dangers and daily conditions at the beach. These are located at beach access points and at the flagged areas. Please read them carefully before entering the water.

A Ask a lifesaver for some good advice. Surf conditions can change quickly (water depth, currents, wave size and type). Talk to a lifesaver or lifeguard before entering the water.

G Get a friend to swim with you. Always swim with a friend so you can look out for each others safety and get help if needed. Children should always be supervised by an adult.

S Stick your hand up for help. If you get into trouble in the water, stay calm. Raise your arm to signal for help, float on your back and wait for assistance. Float with a current or rip, don't try and swim against it.
