Redcliffe and Temple BID have joined forces with Avon Fire & Rescue Service, Bristol City Council, Avon and Somerset Police and Bristol City Centre BID as the Bristol Water Safety Partnership, to bring you the harbourside safety awareness campaign.

Thia campaign comes after several high-profile incidents and deaths involving individuals getting into difficulty in the water.

A series of signs have been installed around the harbour area, highlighting the different risks that the water poses; its temperature, water quality, lack of ladders and exit points in the water, currents and submerged objects, all of which pose a significant risk for would-be swimmers.

Bristol’s maritime area is a marvel of engineering and one of the city’s most popular destinations for tourists and locals alike. This campaign seeks to raise awareness around the dangers the water can pose both day and night.
