As the village’s watchdog body we will always seek a close cooperation with the Local Authority to ensure that all future developments in our village and surrounds are in keeping with the spirit of this statement and that Municipal services are carried out in an effective, efficient and transparent manner.

To help us achieve these aims we need the support of our ratepayers and residents, and so urge all eligible persons to become members of the association. Membership is open to all persons over the age of 18 years who support the PBRPA’s Constitution and who own property in Pearly Beach or who are bona fide lessees of property in our village.

Membership forms are available here but may also be requested by contacting any of the current committee members.

The PBRPA newsletter is also available on this website along with a quarterly news section that will highlight activities undertaken in our village as we strive to attain the goals of the association.

However, none of this can be achieved without your participation so please remember:

We need your support to continue to “work for you”.  The greatest achievement we could all attain is to bring about lasting peace and harmony to our beautiful village as we all work together in a spirit of good neighborliness.

The Emergency Room facility was approved and opened in 2007 by the Department of Health in Worcester.

What is the Pearly Beach First Aid Service and how does it operate?

Firstly, we would like to make it clear from the outset – WE ARE NOT DOCTORS OR NURSES.

Our purpose is emergency FIRST AID.

All the members of the First Aid team have first aid or medical experience and the services they provide are on a voluntary basis.

Members of the First Aid team operate the designated cell phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

When an emergency call is made to the Emergency Room, an assessment is made over the telephone as to the type of emergency first aid required, and to establish which members of the team should attend. First Aid team members are trained to differing levels and each member applies their knowledge according to the type of emergency.

On arrival, the team will assess the situation and take the required action. This might be to contact the ambulance/emergency rescue, transport the injured person to a doctor or arrange for the person to get themselves to a doctor.

By law, NO MEDICATION may be supplied by the First Aid team. Therefore, any medication required must be obtained from the doctors by the patient.

Minor emergencies, however, can be treated by the First Aid staff, either on site or at the Emergency Room situated in Law Street. This room has been equipped as per the specifications of the Department of Health.

The First Aid team works closely with the medical doctors in Gansbaai, Overstrand Medical Rescue, Gansbaai SAPS and security companies, who are all available should further assistance be required.

The number of emergencies attended to in the village is about 200 per year. These do not include the occasional visits to check blood pressure or sugar levels.

Home first aid kit

Every household should have a first aid kit with Bandages, triangular bandages, gauze dressing, a bottle of antiseptic fluid, wound dressings, scissors, adhesive tape, safety pins, plasters, gloves, your own medication, e.g. painkillers etc., Calamine lotion for light burns. Emergency cell phone numbers.

We want to thank the Pearly Beach community for their support in the past and appeal for your assistance in the future.
