Re: Safety measures required
What are the safety measure requires that should be taken with kids under 10 years old.??
On the off-chance that anyone reading this has kids under 10 and isn't sure what to do:
Wearing of PFD's by all and sundry is obvious and a tether is a good idea if you can get them to wear one. The non-obvious one is that, if, heaven forbid, they do happen to fall overboard, a designated adult (usually their mother!
) has to be ready to instantly
go in after them.
Normal MOB recovery procedures apply from there.
