Be Water Aware… You Could Save A Life.

Posted: July 13, 2018

Water Safety Awareness Award at the NMCI

Outdoor leisure pursuits are becoming more and more popular each year in Ireland. From weekend ramblers exploring our beautiful coastline, to clubs relishing in their chosen water sport on rivers and the sea, Ireland has much to offer. There’s something for everyone, young and old when it comes to the outdoors which is why now, more than ever, we need to place an emphasis on water safety.

 

Canadian CanoeSadly, an average of 133 people drown each year in Ireland (visit IWS http://www.iws.ie/about/what-we-do-a-profile-of-iws.1055.html to read more). Irish Water Safety aim to reduce these fatalities by increasing water safety awareness and by changing attitudes and behaviours so that our aquatic environments can be enjoyed with confidence and safety.

SEFtec NMCI Offshore are now conducting the Water Safety Awareness Award for clubs, groups and individuals interested in learning how to stay safe near water.

At just three hours long these courses are ideal for anyone who works near water or enjoys hobbies involving aquatic environments.

Ray Johnston, Operations Manager says “We live on an Island in the North Atlantic, we have an abundance of lakes, rivers and 3,171 kilometres of coastline. The hazards associated with waters on this Atlantic Isle are at times not fully understood until too late. We know well the consequences of not being water aware, “Do not become a case study”. Be water aware.”

Know what to do and how to stay safe… you could save a life.

Book your place on an upcoming course here https://www.nmci.ie/specialised_courses/courseId/48700316/

There are no prerequisites for entry to the course. The Award Certificate is valid for two years.

Bespoke dates are also available and courses can be conducted here at the NMCI or at a location that suits your group, team or club.

Call us today to learn more on 021 4335609 or email services@nmci.ie

Water safety starts in the home but stays with us at work and at play. Don’t become a statistic.
