Cronulla District LifeSaver Rescue
The Cronulla District LifeSaver Rescue Service is a community owned and operated search and rescue service, serving a primary region of the Sutherland Shire from Botany Bay to Otford in the Royal National Park and a secondary region north to Sydney Harbour's South Head. It forms an integral part of the SLSA Sydney Branch Emergency Rescue Network and is on call 24 hours a day, year round.
Each year the Rescue Service performs over 60 missions, rescuing people from aquatic accident scenes such as boat crashes, rock access rescues for cliff falls, and searches for rock fishermen and swimmers.
The Rescue Service assists the Surf Life Saving Clubs in the Bate Bay area, in addition to the clubs in the Royal National Park and also assists the Water Police, Coast Guard, NSW Maritime, PolAir Helicopters, Westpac LifeSaver Rescue Helicopters and Ambulance Rescue Helicopters in emergency situations.
The Rescue Service has undertaken more than 1,300 rescue missions since its inception in 1968, with no cost or obligation to any member of the public who has been assisted.
