As the Northern hemisphere heads for some of the warmest days of the summer it is timely for us to bring to the attention of members involved in the “preventative & education” side of maritime SAR, the Irish Water Safety educational information website

SafetyZone is a portal providing links to qualified, registered training providers in Ireland for surfing, canoeing, kayaking & paddling, snorkeling & diving, angling, boating, rowing, swimming & lifesaving, and sailing.

With the catch line “Know what you’re getting into” Irish Water Safety are encouraging aquatic activities on and in the countries beautiful waterways promoting training and education as the best way to safely enjoy these activities.

Simple and easy to use, an excellent initiative. We will follow up with the team at Irish Water Safety at the end of summer to hear how the public engaged.
