Lifesaving Buoys Being Considered For Huntsville Area Beaches

Posted: 2021-05-28 07:39:12 By: thebay

Councillors from the Town of Huntsville’s general committee meeting heard from concerned residents regarding the need for a lifesaving buoy – which can be thrown to a swimmer in distress and provide buoyancy – at the Port Sydney Dock.

They explained that experienced swimmers who have had lifesaving lessons immediately go for such a device in emergency situations.

All councillors agreed this was an important consideration and asked staff to bring forward a staff report about the installation for Port Sydney and all public beach areas for the next regular council meeting in June.
