Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) teamed up with Thames Valley Police (TVP), South Central Ambulance Service (SCAS) the Environment Agency and local councils to support the Royal Life Saving Society’s (RLSS) national Drowning Prevention Week campaign, running from 19-26 June.

Over 400 people tragically lose their lives in accidental drownings each year in the UK and Ireland and many more suffer life-changing injuries.

In order to reduce the number of accidental drownings each year, Drowning Prevention Week aims to equip people with the skills and knowledge to be able to enjoy the water safely, especially as COVID-19 restrictions ease and people are expected to flock to beaches and inland water spots.
