August 26th, 2017

First Title for the Warringah Rats in 12 Years! The RATS were playing for Lachlan Ward who passed away during a match earlier this season.

This is a great news story for the Rats and the Northern Beaches community. Overcoming adversity and turning the tragic events of Lachlan’s passing into a memorable season for all. Well done to all the Northern beaches community who showed up at North Sydney Oval to support the rats. Well done also to Luke Holmes a local Narrabeen Sports High School student and the heart of the Rats who played his 200th game for the Rats.

Remember to stay safe in all situations and be trained in first aid and CPR at our public courses held at the Dee Why RSL.

Northern Beaches Council Lifeguard Dee Why Beach

July 11th, 2017

A MAN has returned to Dee Why Beach, Northern Beaches, Sydney to thank the people who provided first aid spinal techniques after a terrifying ordeal in which he floated paralysed while struggling for air between waves.

Pooyan Shargh, 32, paid tribute to council lifeguards Sean Woolnough and Scott Mortimer, without whom he probably would have died.

“Thankfully, these gentlemen came and helped, and the first thing I said was, ‘I’m dying, I’m dying’,” Mr Shargh said.

Pooyan Shargh was rescued by Scott Mortimer and Sean Woolnough. Picture: Phil Rogers.

Mr Shargh, 32, went bodyboarding but, on his first wave, went headfirst into the sand, suffering excruciating pain.

“Next thing I noticed, I was paralysed,” he said.

“I was underwater — I couldn’t even feel my legs. I knew straight away something had happened to my neck. I was struggling to breathe, struggling to stay afloat. I thought then. I’m not going to make it.

“Somehow, I managed to get on my back. I was just floating — I was drinking in a lot of water with every wave.”

Shockingly, he said people swam right past him and observed him floating on his back but did not stop to check if he was OK.

Mr Woolnough, 38, was the first to respond to the incident, on May 21.

He was in the lifeguard kiosk with Mr Mortimer when they noticed Mr Shargh floating on his back less than 10m offshore.

“We were watching him. We didn’t actually see anything happen and he was on his back, with his arms by his side — he drifted in towards a rip and someone even walked past him and just looked down,” Mr Woolnough said.

Mr Woolnough said he noticed Mr Shargh’s facial expressions were odd as he approached him on a paddleboard.

“Straight away I knew that it was a spinal problem,” he said

“I could stand so I actually got rid of my board and just floated him, because I didn’t want to move him that much.”

Mr Mortimer, 47, and two off-duty lifeguards assisted in the water with a spinal board to stop Mr Shargh moving too much.

Mr Shargh was even handed back his bodyboard from lifeguards who retrieved it as part of the service.

“If it wasn’t for you guys, I never would have seen my family again,” Mr Shargh said.

“I just want to say how proud we are to have you guys around, watching over us and saving lives.”

Iran-born Mr Shargh, who moved to Dee Why five years ago, urged others to learn from his experience and not go into the surf alone.

“My mistake was going alone, especially me, or anyone that is foreign and probably less experienced than some locals, you definitely have to go with a partner and you have to try to swim within the flags, that is so important,” he said.

Northern Beaches Council aquatic services executive manager Peter Livanes said efficiencies created from the merger of the three former councils — Manly, Warringah and Pittwater — meant it could keep lifeguards on patrol longer.

“Lifeguard presence meant our team were able to respond immediately and provide the highest level of care,” Mr Livanes said.

Mr Mortimer said that changes in shifts meant they were stationed at Dee Why during winter this season.

“This time of year, normally lifeguards are gone but we are staying longer now, just because it has been busier, winter is getting warmer.

“We are here on the weekends — two years ago we wouldn’t have been here,” Mr Mortimer said.

“The old mentality was we used to just watch the flags but now it is different — it is a whole-beach approach. We watch everything.

“You’ve got the playgrounds, surfers, bodyboarders, rock fishermen, not just the swimmers.”

Mr Livanes said the council’s professional lifeguard service conducted more than 220,000 preventive actions during the 2016/17 season.

“I’m extremely proud of the professionalism and work ethic of our team to keep the community safe,” he said. “The northern beaches has some of the best beaches in the world and our team strives to provide the highest level of beach safety to match.”

Simple Instruction provides Spinal training as part of our first aid and CPR training courses at the Dee Why RSL.

Northern Beaches Hospital

March 8th, 2017

Simple Instruction has been interested in how the Northern Beaches Hospital Project has been progressing over the last year. Residents in Forestville, Belrose, Davidson and Frenchs Forest have been feeling the affects of the project during the building stages but I believe that this will be a great outcome for the Northern Beaches and everyone across Sydney. The Northern Beaches Council NBC is trying to limit the impact on residents throughout all stages and we need to focus on the overall outcome of state of the art facilities to keep the Northern Beaches safe.

Please make a booking with Simple Instruction for all your first aid and CPR requirements that are held at the Dee Why RSL.

http://www.warringah.nsw.gov.au/your-council/current-works-and-projects/northern-beaches-hospital-project

The NSW Government is building a new hospital at Frenchs Forest with an estimated completion date of 2018.

Northern Beaches Hospital is being built on a 6.5 hectare site at Frenchs Forest, bound by Frenchs Forest Road West, Warringah Road, Wakehurst Parkway and The Forest High School. This is known as the Northern Beaches Hospital project.

Precinct Planning

Council is preparing the Northern Beaches Hospital Precinct Structure Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to look at the wider land use implications of the proposed new hospital. It will involve a detailed analysis of opportunities and constraints, to properly plan for future development around the new hospital.

Council has engaged consultants to undertake this important planning task. It’s hoped the first draft will be avilable for public comment in early 2016.

Northern Beaches Hospital

Northern Beaches Hospital is the first major investment in public health infrastructure on the northern beaches for decades, and a long-held ambition for the local community.

A new hospital for the northern beaches community will provide more health services and complex care at contemporary standards, with modern infrastructure that supports innovation, research, teaching and clinical changes well into the future.

When the doors open in 2018, the new facility will deliver level 5 hospital services to the local community; with 488 beds, a large emergency department, theatres and a GP clinic on site.

For the first time, the northern beaches community won’t have to travel outside the area to receive complex healthcare treatments.

A scuba diver has died after being pulled from the water on Sydney’s northern beaches.

Police and paramedics were called to Shelly Beach in Manly just after 5pm on Thursday to reports that a man was in trouble in the water.

The 62-year-old was taken to Manly Hospital, where he died on Thursday night. It is believed he was diving alone at the popular dive spot.

“We’ve got one patient in the water … in [cardiac] arrest, CPR was performed and they were taken to Manly Hospital in a critical condition.”

Initial reports from witnesses led authorities to believe there might have been a second missing diver in the water. Water police and a single helicopter searched the area before heavy rain forced the search to be called off.

“We did a fairly extensive search and spoke to a number of people and we don’t believe there was a second person,” a NSW Police spokesperson said.

On Thursday afternoon, Channel Nine reported that two divers had “gone into cardiac arrest after being hit by lightning at Shelly Beach” but this was not confirmed.

Photos of the scene were shared on social media on Thursday afternoon.

Learn First Aid or CPR and save a life!

January 5th, 2016

In the Manly, Warringah and Pittwater regions of our beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney, we are blessed with fantastic water areas and beaches. It is important for everyone from Palm Beach to French’s Forest to Manly to become trained in First Aid and to potentially keep a loved one safe. Make the most of your holidays and get trained in our January 2016 courses that are available at the DY RSL in Dee Why. Make a payment with Simple Instruction to confirm your booking.

A FIRST aid course could save a life according to Red Cross and that life could be a young child.

Children and young adults are particularly at risk toddlers under four account for one in 10 drowning fatalities and young people from 15 to 24 account for 15%, knowing the basics of first aid can save lives according to Red Cross.

Ensure children are supervised when they go into the water even if they are strong swimmers, do not enter the water if someone appears to be drowning unless you are specifically trained, follow the basic life support procedure and do not endanger yourself, always call ‘000’ at the first opportunity to make sure help arrives as soon as possible.

A single day of training could potentially save the life of a friend or family member this summer and Red Cross offers a wide range of training courses in every state and territory. First aid trainer Anthony Cameron believes at least one person in every household should know first aid.

“First aid training is something you should do for the people you love.”

“Having the skills and confidence to react and respond correctly in an emergency can minimise the impact of an injury, assist with recovery and even save a life, it means you can relax a little more this summer.”

The funds generated from first aid training support the everyday work of Red Cross such as providing breakfast for school children who might otherwise go to school hungry, a daily phone call to check on the welfare of an elderly person living alone or clean water for families from remote villages in Myanmar and Timor-Leste.
