The Bondi Rescue crew left Bondi beach behind today to patrol OPSM’s beach in the city. Complete with sand, flags, surf rescue boards and beach buggy’s the city beach made the boys feel at home.
Luke Daniels, Bruce Hopkins and Anthony Harries were rescuing Sydneysiders from the daily grind, helping them escape to the OPSM Protection Station and inviting them to relax under a beach umbrella, put their feet up on a deckchair or get instant relief from cooling misters.
City workers and travellers alike were trying the latest range of sunglasses, a must have for summer, to protect eyes and avoid damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Bruce Hopkins, President of APOLA said: “Safety is our biggest priority at the beach. It is so important for people to protect themselves from UV rays and that includes their eyes. Sunny or not, the APOLA team always wear our sunglasses to protect ourselves from UV damage – we need the best sight to protect everyone at the beach. Sliding on a pair of sunnies is a simple step to take each day to keep safe.”
OPSM has partnered with the Australian Professional Ocean Lifeguards Association to help Aussies keep an eye on their sun protection this summer and raise awareness about the importance of protecting your eyes at all times.
