Any variation to the above will be noted on official beach signage or Council’s Shoalhaven Swim and Fitness website.
Shoalhaven City Council Aquatics Manager, Kevin Norwood said that it was vital local residents and visitors to the area swim between the flags at all times.
“With summer now upon us, an increased number of local residents will be taking advantage of the great conditions and heading to the beach,” said Mr Norwood.
“While conditions may sometimes look calm, it is still of vital importance to ensure all family members swim between the flags and heed advice from patrolling lifeguards.
“In addition to Council’s service, Surf Life Saving Clubs will be providing volunteer beach patrols to the public each weekend and on public holidays until Tuesday, 28 January 2014.”
“Council’s annual Beach Patrol Service will be used to complement the existing and extremely valuable patrols carried out by the area’s Surf Life Saving Clubs.”
