Think Water Safety This Summer
Irish Water Safety, the statutory body established to promote water safety has the following advice for people taking to beaches, lakes and rivers over the Summer
• Avoid places that are dangerous for swimming - if in doubt, err on the side of caution.
Other advice available from one of three new posters recently launched by IWS to increase public awareness in and around our waterways includes
• Swim with others - never alone
Red and Yellow Flags:
The area between the flags is under lifeguard supervision
Conditions are too dangerous for swimming
No lifeguard on duty
Boating enthusiasts are reminded to wear a lifejacket at all times when on deck, check the weather forecast for the area and check the condition of boat and equipment. Other important advice includes:
• Check locally for dangerous currents and tides.
IWS has an extensive summer programme of swim and water safety courses at rivers, lakes and beachfronts throughout Ireland. Make this year the year you learn to swim.
