Our Duty Officers are patrolling the branch during patrol hours. They are available to assist Patrol Captains in the co-ordination of major incidents/rescues and liaise with other emergency services and the media during patrol hours. Duty Officers have already had a substantial amount of experience managing their beach as a Patrol Captain before applying to join the DO team. They also hold a number of other qualifications beyond the Bronze Medallion. From time-to-time the Branch will open applications for new Duty Officers, outlining the minimum requirements. These volunteers are appointed by SNB Branch annually.
