It only takes a split second for happy hour to end in a nightmare. Figures state that about a quarter of all adult drowning victims have alcohol in their bloodstream. If you’ve had a drink, stay away from the water.
RLSS UK’s #DontDrinkandDrown campaign warns people of being under the influence of alcohol and being near water and will be running from 5 to 11 December. Events will be taking place across the country with universities, bars and clubs all showing their support.
Keep you and your friends safe this Christmas with our #DontDrinkandDrown Christmas Survival Guide available here.
There’s lots of ways you can show your support for the campaign including hosting night club events, fundraising and sharing our #DontDrinkandDrown messages on social media. By getting involved in the campaign you can help raise awareness of the dangers of being under the influence of alcohol when near water and help RLSS UK reduce the number of alcohol related drowning deaths.
