RNLI AIMS TO CHANGE BEHAVIOUR
The RNLI nationally aims to change the behaviour of groups and individuals identified as being ‘at risk’ of becoming a rescue statistic for lifeboat crews.
To help raise safety awareness at a local level volunteer community safety teams are being appointed. The role of the Community Safety Team involves developing a local lifesaving plan, including identifying ‘at risk’ groups and providing targeted safety advice.
Thanet’s four priorities
The four coastal based activities that are targeted in the Thanet (Kent) area:
3) In-water play/beach users; and
Joss Bay – one of Thanet’s highly popular beaches
