STAY SAFE BY THE SEA
~~~~~~~~~~~
 

Following key safety advice will keep people safe and help to reduce the demands placed on RNLI lifeboat crews, HM Coastguard and other emergency services.
 

That is why parents are now being urged to take charge and be ‘beach smart’ if they visit the coast to ensure they and their families have the safest summer possible, whether lifeguards are patrolling their beach or not.

Claire Hughes, director of HM Coastguard said:
We know from sad experience that whether you’re local or nor, whatever your ability of experience in your chosen sport or leisure activity, the sea can still catch you out and be unmerciful when it does. Now, more than ever we need people to respect the sea and the coast.

If you get into trouble call 999 and ask for the Coastguard and we will come to your aid. But coronavirus hasn’t gone away, and we all need to follow the rules. Remember your choices might put people, including yourself and frontline responders, at risk. Take extra care in these extraordinary times.’

 

This summer with beach lifeguard patrols significantly reduced the RNLI and HM Coastguard are advising the public not to use inflatables at all and for everyone, especially parents, planning a visit to a beach or the coast to follow this safety advice:

 

·         Have a plan - check the weather forecast, tide times and read local hazard signage

·         Keep a close eye on your family – on the beach and in the water

·         Don’t allow your family to swim alone

·         Don’t use inflatables
 

·       If you fall into the water unexpectedly, FLOAT TO LIVE. Fight your instinct to thrash around: lean back, extend your arms and legs, and Float

 

In an emergency dial 999, and ask for the Coastguard

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 

Don't get cut off by the tide


Nick Marks, Lifeboat Operations Manager said
“We would encourage any visitor to the area to check tide times before walking along the beach, either Lyme Regis Tourist Information Centre or Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre. It is very important to check.”

 

If you see anyone in trouble in the sea,
call 999 and ask for the coastguard.
