Respect The Water

float for your life

The water will be very tempting this weekend to cool off, but don’t be fooled, it’s still very cold once you’re in there. If you do find yourself in trouble fight any urge to swim and float on your back and shout for help.

Saving Lives at Sea

BBC2 is currently repeating their last series of Saving Lives at Sea at 7.00pm every evening. An unmissable watch! Make sure you tune in to watch the outstanding work of the RNLI volunteers.

Southend Lifeboat station didn’t feature in series 3 but it did in the previous series. The kite surfer in this clip is being recued by the Southend on Sea RNLI volunteer crew.
