Today the Irish Coast Guard launched their summer safety campaign “No Life Jacket? No Excuse.” This aims to promote the wearing of Life Jackets not just on the water but also at shore related activities like Rock Fishing. 2 out of 5 people who drown don’t intend to be on or in the water. If you fall into the water in Ireland without a Life Jacket you dramatically reduce your chance of making it back out alive.
No Life Jacket?
Time: 1st minute in the water.
