  • Keep a close eye on your family – on the beach and in the water
  • Don’t allow your family to swim alone

  • In an emergency dial 999, and ask for the Coastguard


Beach patrols


The RNLI lifeguards started their first season on Jersey's beaches on 28 May 2011. They patrol the western beaches on Jersey. 


The majority of the lifeguards live in Jersey and have now worked on Jersey's beaches with the RNLI for several seasons.


Education & Prevention


As part of the preventative and educational aspects of their role, the lifeguards visit local schools to deliver vital beach safety education. They are also involved in the RNLI's Swim Safe programme which teaches children aged 7-14 how to stay safe in and around coastal and open waters. Details on the Swim Safe programme can be found here
