Late last year NZCT helped Sunset Beach Lifeguard Service purchase a new rescue vehicle. The vehicle has been a great asset to the club - particularly over the busy summer holiday period. It is being used to patrol the beach and has already helped rescue several people in need of help.
In particular it was used to support Police and medical staff as they attended a fatal accident in the sand dunes near the clubrooms on New Year’s Eve. The Police commended the club members involved, and they in turn acknowledged their job was made easier thanks to the new rescue vehicle.
