Chose a life-guarded beach

Keep safe over the Easter break

‘We want people to enjoy the coastline but urge everyone to respect the water and take extra care when visiting the coast.’ The RNLI’s key safety advice is:

§  Check weather forecasts, tide times and any local hazard signage to understand local risks

§  Take care if walking or running near cliffs – know your route and keep dogs on a lead

§  Carry a fully charged phone

§  If you get into trouble in the water, FLOAT to live - fight your instinct to thrash around, lean back, extend your arms and legs, and Float.

§  In an emergency call 999 or 112 and ask for the Coastguard

 To find your nearest lifeguarded beach go to
