Keep yourself safe
We need you to keep yourself (and your guests) as safe as possible. Although we want you to have fun afloat don’t lose sight of the dangers. Take special care to inform any guests of the dangers of the marina environment, particularly if they are new to boating.
We want to make sure you stay safe on the pontoons and around the water. We ensure safety equipment is available on every pontoon and is in good, working order. In return we ask you to familiarise yourself with the location of this equipment and how to use it. Can’t find something? Let us know as soon as possible!
In the event of a fire raise the alarm by shouting ‘Fire, Fire, Fire’ and evacuate everyone from the area as quickly and safely as possible. Do not attempt to extinguish the fire unless it is safe to do so. Call 999 and ask for the fire service. Once you have called the fire service, call the marina office so they can assist and guide the fire service to the location of the fire.
Fire extinguishers are located on every pontoon and by the facility buildings.
Small first aid kits are located on every pontoon, if you use any of the first aid equipment please inform the office so we can replenish it. Further first aid equipment and a defibrillator is available from the marina office.
First aid advice can be found on the NHS website.
Information on how to use a defibrillator can be found here.
