Incident Management and Support

The environment in which surf lifesaving operates has the potential for members to be involved in incidents of a traumatic nature. Such incidents could include the loss of life, the provision of emergency care, search and rescue operations, or a serious incident involving fellow members.

Surf Life Saving NSW (SLSNSW) is committed to lessening the impact of critical incident stress on members, staff and their families by providing best practice support following an incident. The approach below outlines the support to members following critical incidents.

For more information on these steps or the support available following a critical incident, please review the Member Welfare Guide
