This week on #FantasticForumFriday we’ve got an infographic from Damien Kenny of The Water Filter Men on Maritime Safety – Being Safe at Sea. Check it out below!
“As part of keeping myself educated about all things water related, I’m continuously researching maritime trends and I enjoy creating informative infographics that can educate the wider public about our beautiful oceans.”
To stay safe at the beach, always remember F.L.A.G.S.
F – Find the red and yellow flags and swim between them.
Always swim where there is a lifeguard on patrol, and stay inside the area marked by the red and yellow flags. Never swim where a sign says not to, or when the red flag is flying.
L – Look at the safety signs.
Always read and obey the safety signs – they will help you to avoid potential dangers on the beach, and to identify the safest areas for swimming.
A – Ask a lifeguard for advice.
If in doubt, it’s always best to play it safe and ask the experts.
G – Get a friend to swim with you.
Make sure there are other people around, because you never know when help might be needed.
S – Stick your hand in the air and shout for help if you get into difficulty.
If you see someone else in difficulty:
ALWAYS tell a LIFEGUARD
Or if you can’t see one
CALL 999 / 112
& ask for the COASTGUARD
