The Beach Safe 2017 campaign is under way. The initiative by Sefton Council in partnership with Merseyside Police, Merseyside Fire and Rescue and the National Trust will promote safe use of the beaches along Sefton’s 22 miles of coast.
They are encouraging people to be aware of potential risks and dangers of being on the beach, as well as being respectful to the environment and other beach users. The Beach Safe campaign is an annual summer collaboration of partners hoping to ensure everybody stays safe and enjoys our beautiful coast.
The campaign is comprised of several safety messages from checking high tides and cleaning up after your dog, to not having BBQ’s and remembering wearing sun screen.
A Sefton Council spokesperson said: “We are delighted to work with partners again to deliver these important messages. We want all beach users to be safe and to have a great time enjoying the Sefton coast. We ask that beach users be respectful to each other and the environment.”
