Videos about correct behavior on ice to prevent drowning

20 December 2017 - 2:18pm

ILSE Member Svenska Livräddningssällskapet SLS from Sweden created videos to warn the civil population about hazards on ice and snow in winter time. The videos inform about the correct behavior before a person venture out on the ice and in cases of accidents.

Both videos were translated into English language realized with support of the International Life Saving Federation ILS. Here you will find the links to the videos. We would like to ask all ILSE Member Associations to publish the video links.

Special thanks to our ILSE Member in Sweden, especially to Mikael Olausson, Water Safety Manager of SLS.
