Did you know that half of all drowning deaths recorded in WA are adults aged 45 years and over?

Before jumping in, setting sail or casting a line...Make the Right Call.

Consider the following four actions to stay safe and have fun:
🏊 Know the conditions
🏊 Know your limits
🏊 Know the gear
🏊 Know what to do

We know that Aussies have grown up around water and have their own tips and tricks to stay safe, but anyone can drown, regardless of age, skills or experience.

Water can overpower you, sometimes when you least expect it. Being prepared, by knowing the risks and how to identify dangers for yourself and others can save lives.
