The Essentials: Episode Eleven
Steve and Clint are both seasoned Lifeguards from the Northern Beaches of Sydney. They have spent their lives rescuing people and doing the best they can to preserve life.
So it comes as no surprise that they were well equipped to deal with the challenges of the Corona Virus. At the height of the epidemic there was a flood of people coming down to the beach. It acted as a huge pressure valve for people from all over the city trying to release the pent up pressure of isolation.
With so many people tightly crammed into one public space, and with such strict social distancing rules in place, inevitably there would be conflict.
In this episode we talk to the boys about how they managed to maintain positive public relations while also enforcing the rules, which on certain occasions meant closing down huge areas of normally one of the most crowded areas in the country.
The Essentials broadcasts on 2NRS Monday to Fridays at 2.30pm.
