Lough Swilly RNLI make four callouts this week alone

The increase in the temperature inevitably means more people will go swimming. The Lough Swilly RNLI are appealing that while enjoying a splash around in the cool water, it is important that water safety is at the forefront of everyone’s minds.
This comes after they had four callouts this week alone by the Malin Head Coast Guard Radio.
They shared the following message:
It has been busy week so far for the Lough Swilly volunteers with 4 callouts. The first callout was on Monday morning at 8.58am. The second callout was at 4.44pm also on Monday. The third shout was on Wednesday at 11.03am with the fourth at 6.14pm on the same day.
Thankfully all the shouts had a good outcome, and we would like to thank all our volunteers for their time and effort this week.
A special mention to two of our newest recruits, Barry Nixon and Stephanie Porter who both had their first official callouts recently, everyone at the station is very proud of them.
With the warm weather and more and more people swimming and spending time around our beautiful coast, we would urge everyone to be careful in or on the water. For more advice, visit www.watersafety.ie or https://rnli.org/safety
If you’re in difficulty in or on the water, or see someone in trouble, dial 999 or 112 and ask for the Coast Guard.
Remember – Better Safe Than Sorry”
