2022年預防溺水周:今年夏天如何在水中保持安全

本周是預防溺水周。該活動的目的是提高人們對如何在水中保持安全的認識。

當天氣暖和、陽光明媚的時候,人們很想去潑水,但你知道如果你遇到麻煩該怎麼辦嗎?

組織該活動周的皇家救生協會(RLSS)為學校提供資源,並為兒童提供特殊的水上安全游泳課程,使他們能夠學會保持安全。

皇家救生協會希望人們在享受水的同時,遵循他們的最高提示,包括始終注意救生員,不要游得太遠,並知道水可能比它看起來更冷,這可能會影響你的游泳能力。

你可能在溫暖的室內游泳池中是一個很好的游泳者,但這並不意味着你能夠在室外的冷水中游泳,你可能會遇到嚴重的麻煩--使自己處於溺水的危險中。

皇家預防事故協會(ROSPA)表示,兒童應該始終與成年人一起去游泳,而不是自己一個人去。

為了保持安全,你在開放水域應該做些什麼?

皇家救生協會(RLSS)主任李-赫德(Lee Heard)告訴《新聞聯播》,如果你正在考慮在開放水域降溫,那麼你不應該 "在訓練有素的專業救生員的監督下"。

以下是該慈善機構關於保持安全的首要建議。

  • 沒有--如果你正在尋找一個涼快的地方,一定要找一個有救生員的游泳場所。
  • 沒有;它比看起來更冷--開放水域和內陸地區的水通常比看起來更冷。冷水會使你的身體進入休克狀態--影響你的游泳和自救能力
  • 無 在水中時--總是與岸邊平行地游泳,這樣你就不會離安全太遠
  • 無或家人--如果出了什麼問題,你就會有人來幫助你
  • 無--你可能認為在無人看管的情況下在水中玩耍或跳下岩石很有趣,但這可能非常危險,幫助或救援可能在很遠的地方。

This week is Drowning Prevention Week. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of how to stay safe around water.

When the weather's warm and sunny it can be tempting to go for a splash, but would you know what to do if you got into trouble?

The Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS), who organise the week, provide schools with resources and special water safety swimming lessons to children so they can learn to stay safe.

RLSS want people to enjoy the water whilst being safe by following their top tips including, always looking out for lifeguards, not swimming too far out and knowing that water can be colder than it looks, which can affect your ability to swim.

You might be a good swimmer in a warm indoor pool, but that doesn't mean that you will be able to swim in cold water outside and you could get into serious trouble - putting yourself at risk of drowning.

Children should always go swimming with an adult and never by themselves, says The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA).

What should you do around open water to stay safe?

Lee Heard, Director of the Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) told Newsround that if you are considering cooling off in open water then you should not "unless you are supervised by a well-trained and professional lifeguard."

Here are the charity's top tips for staying safe: • None - if you are looking for a place to cool off, always find a swimming site that has a lifeguard • None ; it is colder than it looks - water at open water and inland sites is usually much colder than it looks. Cold water causes your body to go into shock - affecting your ability to swim and self-rescue • None When in the water - always swim parallel to the shore, that way you're never too far away from safety • None or family - if anything goes wrong, you've got someone there to help • None - you may think it is fun to play around in water unsupervised or to jump off rocks but it can be very dangerous and help or rescue may be a long way away.
