Looking out for your mates

Real men look out for each other. Avoid alcohol when you’re around water and keep your mates out of trouble if they’ve been drinking and decide to go for a swim or take the boat for a spin.

Look out for your mates by:

  • Standing up to them if they suggest swimming or taking out a boat under the influence of alcohol
  • Suggesting alternative activities away from the water when under the influence of alcohol
  • Enjoying the water before any alcohol is consumed
  • Not leaving them alone if they’re under the influence around water

What to do if your mate is in trouble:

  • Stay with them, don’t leave them alone
  • Call out for help
  • Call triple zero (000) for emergency support
  • Commence CPR
