Here's why it's important:
The Warringah Surf Rescue Building houses our Communications Centre (Surfcom). Our Surfcom provides support to volunteer lifesavers patrolling beaches between North Palm Beach (Sydney) and Pambula ( Far South Coast) especially during emergency situations and rescues. We are the back-up for the SLSNSW State Operations Centre which can communicate with all 129 Surf Life Saving Clubs throughout NSW.
Our ongoing operations from the Warringah Surf Rescue Building is of State-wide significance and importance.
Volunteer lifesavers built the Warringah Surf Rescue building and have occupied it continuously as a rescue base for the past 45 year. Our primary role is helping save lives along our coastline.
Warringah Council is seeking commercial use of the building due to its location and had developed plans for a 60 seat cafe/restaurant.
We seek the Deputy Premier's support by signing our lease to secure our future within the building.
