17 Recognition of Hazards of Water Pupils should be able to name the groups of water hazards: Surf, Weather, Environmental and Marine Life Pupils should be able to classify hazards of water into these groups. Pupils should be able to list at least three hazards per group E.g. Surf Waves, Tides, and Currents Weather Wind Environmental Inshore Holes, Sand Bars, Submerged Objects Marine Life Seaweed, Jellyfish, Barnacles Correct Procedures for dealing with hazards Dealing with Surf Conditions: Pupils should be able to identify if there is a lifeguard on duty. Pupils should be able to identify the lifeguard flags. Pupils should recognise that if surf conditions are hazards there will be a red flag displayed on lifeguarded beaches. Dealing with Weather Conditions: Pupils should know never to take inflatables into the water as the wind could drag them out to sea. Dealing with Environmental Hazards: Pupils should know to be very careful at open water.

18 They should know to enter the water carefully. They should be wary of any submerged objects they should not jump in to unknown water off rocks etc. Dealing with Marine Life Hazards: Shells If cut by a shell the wound should be disinfected immediately by a qualified first aider If stung by a jellyfish pupils should know that it should be treated with vinegar (or another acidic substance) If a pupil gets entangled in seaweed they should try not to panic and gently try to slide themselves free. By panicking and sudden movements they generally become more trapped. Calling the Emergency Services Pupils should be familiar with the procedures for calling the emergency services Do not panic Dial 112 Say what service you require Gardaí, Fire Service, Ambulance, Coastguard Give your name Tell them where you are Tell them the details of the accident Floatation Pupils should be familiar with the concept of floating

19 Pupils should be able to explain what floating means (i.e. staying above the water and not sinking) Pupils should be able to list objects that float Pupils should be able to list objects that do not float that sink. Local Aquatics Organisations Pupils should be able to list local aquatics organisations e.g. Swimming Clubs; Lifesaving Clubs, Water Polo Clubs; Angling Clubs, Surfing Clubs etc. A short research project could be set for pupils to include the name of the club, where they meet, how many times they meet in a week, who is in charge etc. Other Resources available for this course: Water 14 Step to Safe and Enjoyable Swimming Leaflet Water Poster Be Safe Be Seen Poster Stay Safe in the Surf Poster Simulated Rescues on Land Voice Contact Rescue Pupils are in pairs

20 One pupils is the designated rescuer and the other is the designated subject The rescuer attempts to rescue the subject (situated approx 5m away) using only their voice (Encouragement and instruction e.g. kick your legs; keep your head above the water etc) Once casualty is safe, pupils swap positions Rescue with Rope Pupils are in pairs One pupil is the rescuer and one is the subject Follow procedure from Land PAWS 2 Subject receives rope, rescuer gently pulls the casualty to shore Rescuer constantly talks to casualty and informs them of what action is being taken Once casualty is safe, pupils swap positions Rescue with a buoyant object

21 Pupils are in pairs One pupil is the rescuer and one is the subject The rescuer gently throws the ringbuoy to one side of the casualty and instructs them on what to do e.g. kick your legs Once the casualty is safe, pupils swap positions Rescue with a Ringbuoy Pupils are in pairs One pupil is the rescuer and one pupil is the casualty The rescuer gently throws the ringbuoy to one side of the casualty and instructs them on what to do e.g. kick your legs Once the casualty is safe, pupils swap positions. Wading Rescue Pupils are in pairs once again one as the rescuer and one as the subject. Using a pole the rescuer walks slowly towards the subject using the pole to check for submerged objects. Once suitably near the subject the rescuer then reaches for the subject with the pole.
