Don't Drink and Drown

Don't Drink And Drown Campaign

The Scottish Fire and Rescue service are supporting the Royal Life Saving Society’s ‘Don’t drink and drown’ Campaign

Don’t Drink and Drown is a national campaign that warns drinkers to steer clear of walking by or entering water when under the influence of alcohol

Research indicates that around a quarter of all adult drowning victims have alcohol in their bloodstream

The campaign was launched following a string of tragic student drownings.

RLSS advice
Stay Safe

Don’t enter the water if you have been drinking
Alcohol seriously affects your ability to get yourself out of trouble
Look out for your friends, make sure they get home safely
Don’t walk home near water, you might fall in
