Just for the interest - how many members have actually tried to climb into a life ring in the water. And when you try, you probably won't be injured or exhausted or a little chubbier than average. And you'll probably be a reasonable swimmer.
But when you are exhausted and injured and a poor swimmer who doesn't like your head to go underwater and a snug fit in the life ring to boot, a life ring is like tits on a rain barrel - useless.
A horseshoe with a double-clipped tie between the ends is easy to get into and is secure when fastened and is a threat to no-one.
I love beauraucrats.
