Unifying Disparate Networks Across the Country: Surf Life Saving New Zealand

Surf Life Saving New Zealand (SLSNZ) oversees and safeguards 92 beaches with a network of 74 clubs and 19,000 members, 4,500 of which are Surf Lifeguards. Ensuring robust communications between SLSNZ, its members, emergency services, and other Search And Rescue (SAR) agencies is a critical component in providing effective community services.

The organization has significantly grown and adapted its operations, integrating various digital radio networks, standardizing all radios to a national fleet terminal plan, establishing a national IP backbone, launching a national operations center, rolling-out a Common Operating Picture, and implementing a public alerting or notification system.

Fresh from his trip across the Tasman Sea where he took the stage at Comms Connect, Andy Kent (National Lifesaving Manager, SLSNZ) will provide you with an in-depth view of SLSNZ’s journey in building a world-class mission-critical ecosystem. Don’t miss this chance to gain valuable insights from a leading authority in coastal safety operations.
