Assist Royal Life Saving NSW in creating a Drowning Prevention Plan for your community

Western Sydney is spoiled for choice when it comes to places to cool off with inland waterways such as rivers, creeks, lakes, and dams all popular amongst locals over the warmer months.
These environments present a higher risk of drowning due to a variety of factors including changeable conditions, remoteness, lack of supervision and alcohol. Sadly, Western Sydney is the number one drowning blackspot in NSW with 8 of the top 12 LGA in the region
Royal Life Saving NSW are developing a Western Sydney Drowning Prevention Plan that helps our whole community to better manage the risk associated with using the water in our region.
To help us develop a robust strategy we want to better understand the level of knowledge about water safety in our community and hear your ideas on how we can better support the community to stay safe.

Please attempt to answer all questions. The answers are important. It will allow us to understand our communities and their perspective with respect to water safety and drowning prevention in the community. After finishing the survey, it is a good idea to review the survey for completeness before you submit your survey.
