MAKE this summer the start of a lifetime lifesaving journey. That’s the call from Frankston Life Saving Club as it seeks new surf life savers.

Club lifesaving director Ash Presser said the club wants to boost volunteer numbers to pitch in and help those who get into aquatic strife at Frankston beach.

“All sorts of people are surf life savers. They come from all walks of life, in all shapes and sizes,” Mr Asher said.

“No matter if you are young at heart or simply young. There’s a role for everyone on and off the beach.”

Frankston Life Saving Club runs beach patrols during the summer months, rescue jet ski patrols and lifesaving competition events.

All-terrain vehicles, inflatable rescue boats and the jet skis are available thanks to state government funding.

“Joining a lifesaving club is a rewarding experience that can change your life and the lives of others,” Mr Presser said.

Frankston Life Saving Club will host training for new surf life savers in late November and early December at its clubhouse at 1/1N Long Island Drive, Frankston Beach.
