Rescue Water Craft Operator

Operations Support

Looking for the next challenge? Give your rescue skills a high-octane boost, and save lives as a Rescue Water Craft operator.

The Rescue Water Craft Operator or RWC (jetski) service works closely with on-beach lifesavers to conduct roving patrols, surveillance and rescue missions along the coastline. As an RWC operator, you will use your training and skills to manage and operate this vital piece of lifesaving equipment to watch over and protect beachgoers.
