Water safety advice

The RNLI has useful advice about staying safe in water.

If you see someone in danger of drowning, dial 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard. Look for something that floats, or that they can hold on to, and throw it out to them.

If you fall into water, the RNLI advises you to float or rest until you regain control of your breathing, increasing your chances of survival.
