Water safety and drowning prevention

Working with partner agencies to reduce drowning.

What do we do?

We have a dedicated team of qualified officers who deliver water safety packages across our Service area, we also work in partnership with Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) to deliver joint water safety initiatives. 

Why is this important?

Humberside has a significant length of coast and also numerous inland rivers and lakes. We want people to enjoy the water safely and we are fully committed to preventing drowning incidents from happening in the first place.

In order to do this more education is needed, not just in schools but also through engaging with the public in awareness campaigns, so that people fully understand the risks and are better prepared.
