CALLING ALL LIFESAVERS! Half Term is coming – Your Beach Needs You!

We are calling for more volunteers to be deployed as soon as possible to be part of a safety advisory service to beach users to stop people needing to be rescued. Our Beach Warden programme has been a huge success. Over the Bank holiday weekends over 2,000 safety advisory interventions saved lives.

The Beach Warden is an at a “safe distance” volunteer activity following COVID-19 guidance to observe the beach, beach surrounds and close inshore ocean area to provide relevant safety advice to beach users and to be able to call in outside rescue/CPR help when needed.
 

Applications are invited from those who hold or have held a Lifesaver Award in recent years.

This activity is NOT to undertake a rescue.

You just need to know about surveillance, the dangers on your beach and how to communicate effectively.
