1.1 The message:
SEI is an association created to ensure that a valid and credible surf safety message is disseminated in a clear and understandable way to all. (See Rip and surf safety brochure)
1.2 The expertise:
SEI will act as a conduit and forum for expert discussion from local and international experts to ensure that the most effective message is communicated to all beach and water course users.
SEI will utilise skills, knowledge and research findings of SEI members and other experts to develop the appropriate content, delivery methods and educational approaches for preventative, self-survival and rescue/emergency action advice for beach users. SEI will promote the use of these surf safety messages within all publicly available resources and programs. The programs are designed to benefit all would-be and actual beach users.
SEI encourages best practice in content and delivery of surf safety education resources and programs. Content and delivery methods will be designed to meet general and specific needs of beach user groups and the community. SEI will monitor, assess and review the quality of surf safe publications and programs and recommend improvements and/or accreditation for publications and programs that meet the SEI quality standard.
1.5 Reporting and funding:
SEI will prepare reports for government and non-government agencies to ensure that adequate funding is obtained from public, corporate and government sources for surf safety education resources and programs.
This funding has enabled SEI to deliver SURF EDUCARTION programs to rural schools and schools in lower socioeconomical areas within around around Sydney. These schools are target demographic to reduce drowning
Unfortunately the SEI program is not part of the current NSW WSBSF, however if you believe your school is in a lower socioeconomical area, contact us to see if we can meet your budget requirements - 02 99077650 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
