Our lifejacket hubs support strong organisations making a difference in many ways including that we have a shared vision of reducing drownings; that there are partnerships and collaboration to benefit the community; and that together we can make lifejackets available to the community through the hubs located around the Auckland region.
The lifejacket hubs are located in various parts of Auckland for accessibility to all Aucklanders. These lifejacket hubs are located at boats clubs, surf clubs and community venues where they also support the community and try and get these key water safety messages out and known to all.
By having the lifejacket hubs located around the Auckland region; anyone from the community will feel free to make use of the lifejackets so they stay safe in on and around water environments.
We want to equip people with a lifejacket when going out onto the water and we want to take the risk factor away and bring down the drowning toll.
With the support of Maritime NZ’s FED funding we have been able to setup five additional lifejacket hubs in the Auckland region in the following authorities: Rodney District, Auckland City, Franklin District and Manukau City.
You can find the lifejacket hubs at:
