Safety Advisory Group
The tragic drowning of a young boy in 2014, the subsequent Coroners’ findings and a successful Defibrillator appeal in the summer of 2015/16, contributed to the formation of this group of experts to advise the community on Beach and other safety issues.
A desire of the Pearl Beach Community to prevent another tragedy became the catalyst for the formation of this Group.
Pearl Beach Safety Advisory Group (PBSAG)
PBSAG is a subcommittee of the Pearl Beach Progress Association.
Our first project was to oversee the provision, installation and maintenance of life saving equipment at the beach front and other locations in Pearl Beach. A vital part of this project is the ongoing education and demonstration of the use of this equipment to our community and visitors.
We have now organised CPR / Defibrillator and Beach Safety courses and demonstrations as well as half day and full day accredited First Aid Courses with the assistance of Surf Life Saving NSW.
We do seek your support in helping us to make our wonderful Community safer for residents and visitors alike.
The Pearl Beach Safety Advisory Group has initiated a new program, called Neighbour Alert. The aim is to establish a community group who will work together in a bush fire emergency, providing information and access to information to residents on bush fires affecting Pearl Beach. PBSAG has so far recruited 40 volunteer ‘Street Contacts’ who have been connecting with their neighbours, and encouraging them to prepare their bush fire survival plan. So far over 200 households have registered to be advised of relevant information.
A highly visible ‘Emergency Survival Kit’ Must Have Bag is now available, having emergency contact information on the outside and an emergency survival check list inside to assist people to pack the important items that they need to take with them in the event of a bush fire.
These bags are for sale for $10 with a donation to be given to the Pearl Beach Volunteer Fire Brigade.
Please contact us via the PBSAG Contact box from this page should you wish to enquire about or purchase these red Must Have Bags.
