Nsw north coast lifeguards warn of dangers around coastal creeks
Folks heading to Port Lincoln are being warned about the dangers around coastal creeks because of a severe lack of staff.
As of Tuesday afternoon, there were just 26 lifeguards on the beach, down from 75 in 2015, according to the North West Coast Lifeguards.
Northwest Coast lifeguards have advised people who go into the sea to check for creeks and seawall signs before entering.

“The last two years there has been a huge downpour from a very unusual period of warm, very dry weather but it has left an enormous cr성남출장마사지 성남출장샵eeks sign across the coastline,” he said.
“I think it’s a great concern for us.”

South West Coast lifeguards chief executive Wayne Taylor said lifeguards in the city needed more staff.
“The lifeguards are working out how to get the job done, and to get the job done it’s just a really big issue for us,” he said.
