RNLI Lifeguards on Patrol Over Bank Holiday Weekend
Lifeguards from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) will be patrolling beaches on the Yorkshire coast over May Bank Holiday weekend.The charity lifeguards will be providing extra peace of mind to the additional influx of visitors expected in the region for the Tour de Yorkshire, which takes place this weekend.
RNLI lifeguards will be at their posts on Scarborough's North and South bay from 10am to 6pm over the weekend and on Bank Holiday Monday. They will also be patrolling beaches at Whitby and Sandsend during these times.
Lifeguard Manager, David Brant, said:
"We are really excited to be back on patrol as the Tour de Yorkshire passes through the area and we’re expecting an extra surge of visitors to the beaches.
"Our lifeguards will be on-hand to offer friendly safety advice such as always to swim between the red and yellow flags and information on tide times. 95% of the role is preventative but our team is highly trained to deal with everything from locating missing children through to performing major first-aid and lifesaving rescues.
"An RNLI lifeguard vehicle will take pride of place in the Tour de Yorkshire publicity caravan each day, which sets off two hours before the race starts and we’ll be giving away RNLI flags and stickers to spectators. Do give us a wave if you see us."
