Surf Life Saving Australia, March 25, 2017: Surf Lifesaving Australia Safety and Emergency Management Coordinator Steven Leahy has advised the competition schedule is unlikely to be affected by Cyclone Debby.
“We are speaking directly to the Bureau of Meteorology regularly, and at this stage there is no cause for concern to competition over the next few days,” Leahy said.
“There is an extensive Safety Operations Manual in place and this provides us with guidance.
“Should we experience severe weather conditions contingency plans including relocating to still waters locations are in place.
“The safety of our competitors as well as our officials, volunteers and spectators will always remain paramount.”
