There is nothing better than enjoying a lovely walk with your dog at the coast taking in sea air, grabbing some exercise and enjoying time with your friends and family. However, lifeboat crews and Coastguard Rescue Teams (CRT) are frequently called out to rescue dogs that have entered the water for one reason or another or fallen over the edge of a cliff. Sometimes their owners will enter the water to try and rescue them too. In 2019 RNLI crews were launched 157 times to incidents involving dogs.
Our Drowning Prevention Week stand all set up at Viking Bay, Broadstairs
Viking Bay, Broadstairs was the location of our Drowning Prevention week Pop-Up stand on Saturday (15th June). The Drowning Prevention week was created by the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) which aims to reduce the number of drowning and near drowning incidents that occur in the UK every year, by showing people how to be safe and have fun near water. The campaign encourages schools, clubs, leisure centres and communities, to promote water safety education through events, lessons, games and activities, in a bid to make people more aware of the dangers of water.
