Royal Life Saving Society WA
Since 1999, Western Power and Royal Life Saving Society WA have worked together to help create safer communities in Western Australia.
Through the provision of community safety initiatives such as event safety services and aquatic safety activities, this partnership aims to improve the level of education and awareness of safety in the community.
Our sponsorship provides funding for three safety programs:
Rescue and revive program
The Royal Life Saving Rescue and Revive program promotes safe participation in community activities through the provision of emergency response equipment and highly trained First Aid personnel at events.
Last year, qualified First Aid and Water Safety Officers attended a total of 121 events with an estimated 450,000 patrons.
Swim school open days
This day involves swim schools throughout the state offering free assessments for children that can be measured against the Swim and Survive accreditation system.
This event provides children and parents with guidance and meaningful insight into the skills required to safely participate in aquatic activities in their local area over the summer months. In 2010, there were 20 centres involved with around 5,850 people attending the days.
All children participating received free gifts from Western Power and Royal Life Saving WA to encourage them to continue water safety education.
Western Power bravery awards
These awards recognise the achievements of individuals who have used their life saving skills to make a difference to others.
We uphold safety as a core value and support the Royal Life Saving Society WA in its work to spread safety awareness and training.
