SurfCom

SurfCom is a National Management System that has been developed by Surf Life Saving Australia for implementation in Surf Rescue Communication Centres around the country.

SurfCom has a fully web-based front-end that has been developed to integrate data into various other SLSA systems including SurfGuard, IRD and Beachsafe.

This integration maps the data gathered by SurfCom for patrols, incidents and statistics direct into SurfGuard and IRD databases using open international web standards and comforming to the SLSA Information Technology Strategic Plan.

With the addition of the SurfCom system in 2009, Surf Life Saving Australia now owns and manages the entire system and source code end to end ensuring development to be more effectively coordinated and data sharing, analysis and control will be more streamlined and efficient. Users are able to access the system from any computer connected to the internet which allows effective and immediate use of this valuable and essential resource.
