Water Safety Code

18/06/20

We hope our water safety series has been of use to you. We want everyone to enjoy the water but stay safe. We’ll always be here for you, but it’s always a good idea to be equipped with the knowledge to look after yourself.

Always follow the Water Safety Code


When around water:

Stop: Be vigilant and look for the dangers
Think: Look for any signs and be sure to read and understand them
Stay Together: Don’t swim alone - always go with family or friends

In an emergency:

Call 999 or 112: Shout for help and dial the emergency services
Float: If you fall into the water, float or swim on your back. If someone else has fallen in, throw them something that floats to hold on to
