Water Safety Awareness Week - 16-24 Jun 2012
National Water Safety Week is a great opportunity to make a splash about the importance of lifesaving skills and give people a chance to meet Royal Lifesaving Society volunteers to find out more. From the 16th - 24th June 2012, the RLSS will be promoting having fun and being safe in, on and near water.
We'd like to invite every lifesaver within the branch to get involved - maybe your club can host an event? Or just make a special effort to invite new members along for a taster session? Whatever you're planning we want to hear about it! Contact us at email@example.com
and we'll help to publicise your event.
In February the RLSS updated their guidance on those requiring mandatory CRB checks. All those who are Club Welfare Officers, Lifesaving TA's/Instructors/Teachers, Rookie Instructors, Assistant Instructors and Volunteer Lifeguards require a CRB check to be completed.
If you think you should be CRB checked, or want to check if you are cleared by the RLSS, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
