Launch of RNLI and MCA Beach Safety campaign

02/06/2020

Dear Member

Like us, you'll no doubt be concerned about the level of activity that we might see around our coastline this summer as the Government eases its lockdown restrictions.

Coupled with a lack of lifeguard provision, we fear that we may experience a rise in the number of incidents and drownings.

In response to this, the RNLI and MCA are launching a Beach Safety campaign ahead of this May Bank Holiday weekend.

Through the campaign, they will be issuing advice on family supervision, inflatables, and the need to dial 999 for the coastguard in an emergency.

Please keep an eye on the RNLI's social media channels in the run up to this weekend, including its Facebook page, and help to share these important messages with your own audiences.
