Whether you are arranging a small lake swim, a triathlon, a boat race or a mass participation/spectator event in or near water, we are able to give event organisers peace of mind that your water safety arrangements are in hand. We can provide the entire team for you, including support paddlers, rescue boats/crews and bank based lifeguards. When you enquire we will carry out a risk assessment to ascertain the resources that best suit the needs of your event in line with up to date water safety guidelines.
Whether your event requires paddle rescue boards, kayaks, IRB's (Inflatable Rescue Boats), RWC's (Rescue Water Craft) or large ribs, we have the ability to supply the equipment and staff at the right place at the right time. Our Water Safety Team are professional experienced staff from backgrounds such as RNLI Beach Lifeguards and Lifeboat Crew, RLSS Pool Lifeguards and Swift Water Rescue Technicians. Our staff are also holders of the RYA Power Boat and Safety Boat qualifications.
What we do:
Prior to the event we work with the event organisers to put in place comprehensive water safety procedures and risk assessments and, based on that information, arrange sufficient cover for the event. We will also liaise with the Water Safety Team on logistical and organisational issues and act as a central point of communication for the event organisers.
On event day we’ll take overall responsibility for the operation and management of the Water Safety Team ensuring plans are being adhered to and liaising with the event organisers to ensure a smooth running event. We’ll bring our own core team of highly experienced Team Leaders to head up each section of the Water Safety Team.
Post event we’ll collate feedback from the Water Safety Team and present to the organisers a detailed debrief with suggestions on how to further improve the event. We believe in constantly striving to make improvements in order to achieve excellence in our field.
