Yeppoon Coast Guard

Lions have been a major sponsor of Yeppoon Coastguard for many years.

We have contributed both cash and specific items to assist the Coastguard to carry out their important function of saving vessels and lives at sea.

The most dramatic use of this project was to rescue a fisherman off Emu Park . Jim Goodsell, a Yeppoon Lion and Coastguard member, skippered the boat to rescue a fisherman who ventured too far out, misjudged the tidal rise and were called out after his wife reported he could not swim.
