‘Be Summer Ready’ is part of a Government of Ireland initiative which aims to create awareness about potential safety risks for the general public during the summer months. ‘Be Alert to Water Safety’ is the emphasis of this year’s campaign, in conjunction with Water Safety Ireland, Met Éireann and the Irish Coast Guard.
Throughout the summer, people visit Ireland’s coastal and inland waterways in greater numbers. For a number of reasons, this presents greater water safety risks and can lead to drowning accidents.
Water Safety Ireland urges everybody to become familiar with the freely available information here. The ‘Be Summer Ready’ advice and guidance is likely to save many lives, and is an important reminder for us all to make water safety part of our everyday conversations with family and friends.
