Most popular beaches in Australia are patrolled by voluntary life savers. They put red and yellow flag to mark safest location for swim. Surfers are kept away from swimmers as they running at high speed and may hurt swimmers with rigid boards. Every year hundreds of people are rescued on the beaches by life savers.
