Call for Volunteers to Keep Our Beaches Open and COVID-Free this Summer

By Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 7 Oct 2020
Northern Beaches Council is calling for expressions of interest for people to become Volunteer COVID Safety Ambassadors to help keep the community safe and healthy this summer.

In conjunction with Council’s COVID-19 Summer Action Plan for Outdoor Public Spaces, volunteers would interact with visitors at popular coastal locations reminding them of social distancing requirements.

Mayor Michael Regan said Council has worked hard to support keeping beaches and popular places open this summer, but the community has to do its bit to make that happen.

“Our plan specifies ways we will monitor crowd numbers and keep public spaces and beaches at safe capacity,” Cr Regan said.

”Volunteers will be important to support the teams of lifeguards and lifesavers who will be actively giving friendly reminders and updates to people about social distancing and gathering sizes.

“We have all seen examples of where volunteer ambassadors have worked well at sporting events, like the local rugby, and being respected as they asked people to maintain suitable distance.

“Volunteers would perform a similar role to those at the Sydney Olympics, providing a friendly face to crowd management, which then helps free up lifeguards and lifesavers to focus on the water.

“We all want to play a part to keep our beaches in particular open for summer.

This is a great way for us to help our community and those that visit to keep us safe in the water, and keep the beaches open for a swim,” he said

Times, locations and days are flexible and training and a uniform will be provided.
