Water Safety

Tue 19 Jul 2022
Dear All
As the summer holidays approach, with the potential of hotter days the appetite to cool off in open water increases.  This is a significant risk whilst the weather is so hot.
Sadly, over recent days a number of young people in the UK have lost their lives swimming in open water
Please see below video, where Station Manager Jason Frary from Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, talks about water safety and in particular young people and entry into the water.
We would greatly appreciate it if you could stress to your children and young people about the dangers of playing in water for example; cold water shock, underwater obstacles and transition of waterborne diseases.
Take a look at the video
Yours sincerely
Andrea Stansfield
Public Safety Prevention Manager (Hull & East Riding)
