Road Safety

Remaining alert and paying attention to road conditions can help reduce the number of collisions on the county's roads.

Driving within the limits of your ability, vehicles and adhering to the conditions of the roads reduces the risks of becoming involved in a collision.

Water Safety

Around 320 people drown in the UK every year and thousands more suffer injury, some life changing, through near-drowning experiences. Evidence shows that 44% of drowning fatalities happen to people who had no intention of entering the water. This is a stark reminder that it isn't just traditional water users who get into danger.

Summer Preparedness

If you are having a picnic in a park or open space – don't use a BBQ (including disposables), grass can be very dry and a fire can start and spread quickly. This puts people, homes, property and wildlife in danger. You can help to reduce the risk of a fire by not using any naked flames in the open.
