Emergency responses and more

Initially focussed on an emergency response service, the jet ski teams’ responsibilities have grown. This includes assistance in performing rescues under difficult conditions, as well as early morning surveillance patrols of swimmers along the Perth coast.

Introduced into Western Australia in 2003, Wesfarmers has supported SLSWA’s jet ski teams since 2008. This support has allowed for the growth of the program and placement of new teams at key locations along the West Australian coastline.

The Wesfarmers Life Saver Jet Ski Teams are rapid, motorized response units that assist surf lifesaving beach patrols and other emergency response units.
