Waiheke's next generation of lifeguards put through their paces
A grant from Rotary Waiheke helped to bring instructors and volunteers from Bethel's Beach Surf Life Saving Club with their rescue boats to run a training day for Waiheke's young lifeguard trainees at Onetangi beach. Skills being taught included CPR, first aid signal, radio, releases and tows, theory, run-swim-run tests, and tube rescue. Nearly 100 Waiheke kids took part and it was an amazing experience for everyone involved.
