To become a fully qualified surf lifesaver on beach patrol you will need to join Alex and gain your Bronze Medallion/Certificate II in Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue). 


The Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) is a stepping stone towards gaining a Bronze Medallion and provides participants with basic skills and knowledge of first aid, rescues, and CPR, enabling them to patrol as part of a patrol team. This is the perfect pathway from junior activities to patrolling ranks or for parents/guardians who wish to act in the role of water safety personnel during nipper programs, sports carnivals or training.

“We ask that you please keep safe and always swim between the Red and Yellow Flags.”

Alexandra Headland Beach is patrolled by our volunteers through summer from September until May, keeping our beautiful beach safe for the Alex Community and for visitors.


Surf Life Saving QLD and Sunshine Coast Council Lifeguard Services provide patrolling services ensuring our beach is safe 365 days of the year.

The Bronze Medallion is the core award to be a surf lifesaver in Australia. As a Bronze Medallion holder you will have the required skills and knowledge relating to surf awareness, rescue techniques, radio communication, CPR and first aid.
