Living your Safer Summer Era at the beach, lake or river?
Remember, that alcohol and other drugs impair your coordination and reduce your reaction time. So, avoid alcohol and other drug use around water and save any drinks until AFTER you swim. Use the buddy system (ie always swim with a mate!), stay between the flags at the beach and use life jackets around the river or other waterways.
Check out all the summer, water safety tips from our friends at Royal Life Saving: Are you Summer Ready?!
If someone passes out & you are unable to wake them or if they become unwell, call Triple Zero (000) for an ambulance, it could save their life.
Catch up with us at our campaign stalls! We’ll bring the activities and the campaign goodies (yummy lollies, yes please!). You just bring yourself and your mates:
