Welcome to Life Saving Victoria

It has the mission to prevent aquatic related death and injury in all Victorian communities and the vision that all Victorians will learn water safety, swimming and resuscitation, and be provided with safe beaches, water environments and aquatic venues. 

Life Saving Victoria will achieve this by working with its members, communities, educational institutions, governments, and other organisations in the provision of best practice education, surveillance and rescue, training, and risk management services.

Life Saving Victoria is forging new lifesaving and water safety initiatives while respecting the proud traditions and programs of the Royal Life Saving and Surf Life Saving National organisations.
