Winter Water Safety

Given the tragic events at the weekend and the forecasted continued colder weather as we head into the Christmas holidays, we at Shropshire Fire and Rescue would like to highlight the attached resources and websites. This information is designed to be easily communicated to our young children via classroom discussions or school assemblies and we would like to ask that you pass this information onto them this week before the holidays start.

I have attached the winter water safety poster from the Royal Life Saving Society and their winter safety colouring activity sheet. More information can be found at

Please stress the importance of keeping off frozen lakes/canals as the ice will not be as thick as it looks and the best way to stay SAFE around water is to Stay Away From the Edge. If they do spot anyone in difficulty in the water then do not enter the water themselves, call 999 and ask for the Fire Service.
