Brave & Strong All Day Long

Hi Eastside,

We have a book launch! It is on Sunday 12th November 11 a.m at the South Maroubra Surf Club. 

This is a really big deal in the community as Fiona is a female lifeguard who has risen beyond tractional glass ceilings in the area of surf rescue and a very popular local figure. The launch of this book come sat a perfect time in terms of press release as it is the start of the beach season and also the month of White Ribbon Day. Fiona represents both lifesaving and beach safety as well as positive strong female role model of resilience. I think it is crucial that the local community see this talked about in their paper and know that they are welcome to come along to celebrate with us at the launch!

Fiona the Lifeguard Bio

Enjoying the stunning oceans and beaches is very much part of an Australian lifestyle. Having grown up near the ocean, Fiona now works as a lifeguard on Sydney’s Eastern beaches for Randwick Council. Fiona’s in-depth knowledge of the local coast and the surf has enabled her to keep people safe and to save lives during her years as a lifeguard cutting out a successful and highly regarded career in a traditionally male sector.  The notoriously dangerous rips and shore dumps that occur seasonally require strength of mind and body and a selfless quick-thinking response when danger is at hand. Public safety and understanding of the surf are important considerations for all local government councils in charge of coastal areas and the rigour of training and standards of their lifeguards are testament to this.
