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 the dangers of mixing alcohol and water. The campaign will run throughout Autumn 2016 and Winter 2017 with a social media campaign running from 26 September to the 2 October. Events will be taking place across the country with universities, bars and clubs all showing their support.
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.
