New safety signage installed at Crosby Beach
Coinciding with the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) Water Safety Week, we’ve installed new safety signage at Crosby beach to remind people of the potential hazards.
It’s especially important as we go into the long Bank Holiday weekend to follow the advice of the RNLI and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service at the coast.
Look out for the new signs and ensure you know what to do if you or someone you see gets into difficulty in the mud or water at the beach.
Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service’s Marine Rescue Unit is working alongside the RNLI to remind people across the North West heading to the coast this Bank Holiday to take beach safety seriously.
To always check the weather and tides before planning a visit as there has been an increase in call outs of people getting stuck in the mud and cut off by tides.
More on how the RNLI is keeping Sefton’s beach goers safe can be found on their website https://rnli.org/safety/beach-safety and people are reminded not to enter the water to help a person or an animal in distress but to call 999 for help.
