Beach safety in Ballina is set to be improved thanks to a $3000 grant from the NRMA Insurance Surf Life Saving Club Help Program, which will aid the training of local lifesavers.

The grant allowed the Ballina Lighthouse and Lismore Surf Life Saving Club to buy a new laptop and data projector for education, development and training of its members.

With patrols kicking off last month, the equipment is already being put to use to aid the training of surf lifesavers who will patrol the beach this summer and beyond.

The one-off grant was part of $110,000 worth of grants and equipment given to 24 surf clubs along the NSW coast under the NRMA Insurance program.
