Water Safety Message from Meath County Council - To stay safe at the beach, always remember F.L.A.G.S.

Date Released: 15 June 2017

 

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.
