The RNLI nationally, aims to change behaviour of groups and individuals as being at risk of becoming a rescue statistic for lifeboat crews. To help raise safety awareness at a local level, volunteer community safety teams are appointed. The role of the Community Safety Team involves developing a local lifesaving plan, including identifying at risk groups and providing targeted safety advice.
