Water Safety

Also known as:- Fire Safety on Boats, Flooding, Water Safety

Service Description: The public perceive the Fire Service as the prime rescue service across a wide range of hazardous situations, including water related incidents.

It is the policy of Fire and Rescue Services (FRS) to mobilise to all requests for assistance to save life, render humanitarian services and protect property.

Working near, on or in water is inherently hazardous. Fire and Rescue Service personnel receive specialist training to enable them to operate safely in this environment. Personnel who respond to support or assist in the rescue of those at risk from water are aware of the extreme hazards they are likely to be exposed to.
