Media Guidelines

Surf Life Saving New Zealand have come up with some helpful guidelines when talking to the media (see the link at the bottom)

In brief, we can talk to the media about local, beach and club related items, it does not need to go through SLS Northern Region or New Zealand.

Generally the patrol captain of the day should take the lead (or delegate if they are busy) when dealing with the media but other members can front for any photos or video clips if desired.

The Management Board can also be contacted for more advice or if there is any concerns around what the media want.

For any non Muriwai, national issues please contact SURFCOM (0800 SAVE LIFE) and they can get the right people onto it.

Please also remember to respect people’s privacy when discussing details (see the guide for some good tips), you can include sex and age, such as a 23 year old male or female in her 20’s

This does NOT apply to regional guard patrols, as employees of SLS Northern Region they need to follow their protocols.
