The Rotary Club of Geelong East has been working with a range of authorities including City of Greater Geelong, Corangamite Catchment Authority and Parks Victoria, to arrange for safety markers to be installed along the BaRwon River. 
The project, an idea by Rotarian Keith Dawson is to have markers spread along the bank so that anyone who had an accident could give emergency services the exact location that they were in. Each marker would be numbered and would be linked to a GPS. This would save emergency services critical time in trying to locate someone and may make the difference between life and death.
 
The project is now about ready to go. A great deal of work has been done and shortly the markers will be put in place.
