Event Details

About this event

Following recent river tragedies in Shrewsbury, Shrewsbury BID have teamed up with Shropshire Fire and Rescue to offer free training of the RNLI waterside response scheme program to Shrewsbury businesses.
All businesses in Shrewsbury are urged to send their staff on this course to upskill their team and play a part in creating a safer Shrewsbury.
If somebody gets into difficulty in water that’s not normally used for swimming or leisure activities, specialist help is often unavailable. However, specially trained hospitality staff, security staff and waterside community members could provide help in an emergency.      
This programme is about equipping people who work near water (which could be anywhere in Shrewsbury)– especially where a lot of alcohol is consumed – with the basic knowledge and skills to be confident to take action to save a life.
This training programme will give you the basic knowledge and skills you need to: • recognise hazards in and around water • provide safety advice to people using waterside areas • rescue someone from the water.
This event is being hosted by Hickory's Smokehouse, Victoria Quay.
