PINK BUOYS SAVE LIVES NSRI Fund Raising Campaign.

We at Midas Paints Tygervalley are proud to partner with the NSRI fund raising campaign, PINK BUOYS SAVE LIVES, just in time for the December Holidays, keeping you and your customers safe at our beaches this holiday. PINK BUOYS SAVE LIVES fundraiser runs from the 1st December until 1st January 2022.

The Pink Buoys are there for us, who just happen to be at a waterbody, to save a life when lifesavers are not present – whether of a stranger, your own family member or even you! Since the start of the Pink Rescue Buoy project in 2017, 81 lives have been saved with the use of these pink buoys.

The distinctive bright pink floatation devices have been strategically placed on signs at designated inland rivers, dams and at beaches. Each Pink Rescue Buoy is located on a sturdy pole with signage instructions, the NSRI’s emergency number and the pink buoy’s unique identification number. This Unique helps rescue services to identify the location of the emergency when the rescue call is placed. They are generally located in an area where there are no lifeguards on duty, the Pink Rescue Buoys can be used to help a person in the water who appears to be in distress.

Pink Rescue Buoys – 81 rescues, and counting!

PINK BUOYS SAVE LIVES NSRI fundraiser

The NSRI’s Pink Rescue Buoy initiative has been a ground-breaking innovation for Drowning Prevention since 2017, winning the IMRF (International Maritime Rescue Federation) Award for Innovation and Technology in 2018.

 

“Untrained people are going to the aid of someone who is in danger of drowning despite being advised not to. Our Pink Rescue Buoys use simple graphics to explain that it is safer to throw the float to someone and call the emergency number on the sign for help. But if someone does go into the water despite being advised not to, they have a very good chance of survival if they take flotation with them. In the rescues that we have recorded no rescuer was injured and all rescues were successful”

Andrew Ingram, Drowning Prevention Manager
