Gosford Council lifeguards have completed this years pre-season training at Avoca Surf Club with Vital First Aid, this being about the 18th year with Vital. The lifeguards refreshed their skills in beach rescue, oxygen use, advanced first aid skills, CPR and defibrillation as well as spinal care. Once again the lifeguards showed an extremely high level of professionalism which can only work to keep our beaches safe again this year.
