  • The drones deployed on NSW beaches this summer are able to assist life savers with a birds eye view of the water and life saving operations.
  • Here Newport’s “Bernie’s” patrol four pose to spell out the B in Bernie with Bernie Howard, Life Member, himself.
  • The shots highlight the camera acuity that allows the drones to assist in detecting and preventing hazards.
  • Btw, our very own Peter Probert and Greg Matthews have been instrumental in the success of this programme. More information.

Patrol 4 also known as The Bernies on Patrol
