Across the Fylde coast businesses and organisations contract many people daily and therefore can help to spread important water safety information unique to the Fleetwood area in their business messages. As a modern charity, the RNLI relies on community support to enable their lifesaving work to be sustained and continue.

Volunteers, supporters and staff are all part of the crew. By becoming RNLI Local Ambassadors, organisations can help promote safe behaviour around water, and support the charities’ integral work to save lives at sea.

Mandy Moss, Fleetwood RNLI Water Safety Officer said,

‘With many people spending time by the Fylde coast this summer, it’s essential that water safety messages are shared to local communities. By chatting to customers, and sharing our water safety messages through social media, RNLI Local Ambassadors can help make our communities safer around water.’
