RNLI new safety video – carry a means of calling for help

RNLI

Out of the 300 kayaking incidents that the RNLI launched to in 2013, none of the casualties were able to call emergency services using a mobile phone or radio. This is what has prompted the RNLI’s kayaking campaign with the key safety message of ‘carry a means of calling for help’ in order to change paddler’s behaviour and get them to start carrying either a mobile phone or VHF, keeping it protected and keeping it within reach. 

If you can’t reach to call for help, help can’t reach you. Always carry a means of calling for help and keep it within reach:
