Patrol Hours

Patrol Roster

The patrol season commences 18 September 2021 and will finish on 2 May 2022.

Limsoc

  • Limsoc is the patrolling app located on the Patrol Ipad and is used for patrol sign on/off, recording statistics and incident reports.
  • From 1 November new upgrades are being undertaken, to enable members to sign on/off patrol, with the goal of becoming paperless, so it is really important you have access;
  • To access Limsoc, you will need to first complete the training (Click here – LIMSOC 2021 Update);
  • Attached is a 2021 LIMSOC User Guide  outlining the new upgrades;
  • The logon for training is your SLSA Member Area User Name and Password;
  • If you completed last season, there is no need to do this again;
  • When the training is completed, please advise the Club Office (surfadmin@tugunslsc.com.au), so your access to Limsoc can be approved;
  • To log into Limsoc on patrol you will need to use your SLSA Member Area User Name and Password.
  • We would recommend you keep this handy, for easy reference during patrol.

Finding a Substitute
