West Dunbartonshire Leisure Open Water Festival

Open Water Rescue are pleased to work with West Dunbartonshire Leisure in providing safety consultancy and services for the 2018 open water swimming festival held at Lomond Shores Meadows on 21st June 2018.

Although the water conditions were choppy, this added to the fun for the participants who were well looked after by their coaches. Additional safety was provided by Kayaks and shore based First Aid. Lunchtime entertainment was provided by a very low level fly past from the sea plane directly overhead.

3 personnel in attendance in addition to rescue craft

2018 Helix Emergency Services Day

Open Water Rescue attended the 2018 Helix Emergency Services day held on 02/06/2018. We were situated at the cafe and next to the Royal Lifesaving Society UK (whom we are affiliated to).

3 of our volunteers were at the community engagement show along with one of our boats and some of our rescue and training equipment. We were kept very busy with the hundreds of visitors… with many of the children (and even some adults) getting their photos taken whilst wearing some of our safety gear. The equipment was explained as well as how and why it is used and visitors had the opportunity to try CPR.
