June 16th sees the start of the Royal Life Saving Society’s annual Drowning Prevention Week Campaign…lots of activities and social media planned to raise awareness …so please do join in…lots of Fire and Rescue Services will also be joining in or holding demonstrations next week.

This week I had the pleasure of attending a launch event with presentation aimed specifically at young people at high schools….it’s called “Water Savvy, Water Safe” and designed on the back of the successful “Safe Drive, Stay Alive” programme…and in partnership between the Fire Service and RLSS, with delivery support from other agencies. Trial feedback has been really positive, so we hope it will be a programme that helps improve water safety, help awareness and understanding and help drive better risk awareness…all we all want is for people to enjoy water safely #bewateraware and reduce the number of injuries and fatalities.
