All it takes is a few seconds to fall or step into deep water and drown. Sea Rescue’s Water Safety lessons now have an additional emphasis on ‘spot the dangers’, adding an extra layer of education to emphasise the importance of knowing the water before you enter it to keep yourself safe.Our Water Safety programme is appropriate for students, from pre-school through high-school as well as adults, with interactive programs educating them on the importance of water safety.So many children swim without adult supervision. Children need to ensure they ask a guardian to watch them swim, and adults need to ensure their children are supervised at all times near the water.
