Bristol Rules

Keep away from the edge

Don't be tempted to sit by the harbourside at night. Keep away from the edge and be extra careful near the water. Cold water shock makes getting out of the harbour even harder when you are intoxicated.

If you spot somone in trouble in the water

Call 999 to inform Avon and Somerset Police. If you don’t have access to a phone, do not enter the water but shout for help.

Try to encourage the person in the water to float on their back.

What to do if you fall into the harbour

Lie on your back and try your best to float, keep your airways clear, control your breathing and you will find after approximately 90 seconds the shock will pass.
