Hello and Welcome to My Website!

I decided to set up this site as a communication opportunity for myself and most importantly – you – the people of Frome. I hope you enjoy exploring this site as much as my staff and I did when putting it together. I appreciate feedback, and would love to hear from you as to the information you would like made available on the site.

The Frome Electorate and Regional South Australia is very important to me. Engaging with the community is essential to ensure that I have a clear understanding of issues faced by the people of Frome.

YOUR SAY

Proposed Lifejacket Regulations

Lifejacket regulations are now being reviewed, with a particular focus on increasing the safety of children and keeping the boating community safe.
The primary purpose of any lifejacket is to increase safety. They assist the wearer to float – and ultimately can prevent them from drowning.
Simply carrying lifejackets on board vessels does not save lives because unexpected situations can occur suddenly and without warning. Locating and donning lifejackets once in the water can be difficult or impossible.
What is being decided?
Proposed regulations about when lifejackets must be worn on recreational vessels in South Australian waters. Currently there is a requirement that lifejackets be carried on board vessels but the requirement to wear them only applies in specific circumstances.
A range of options is being considered to better align with the requirements for boaters in other states such as NSW and Victoria.
