SUMMER 2020

Summer 2020 is upon us and it is important that we all part to play in making drowning prevention part of our conversations with family, friends and neighbours. Throughout these months, we will deliver essential safety messages on the theme of ‘Better Safe, Than Sorry’. We want your help to ensure everyone intending on being in, near or on water has all the safety information they need.

See the shareable resources below if you would like to become involved in our campaign.
