Coolum Christian College students have learnt safe recreation behaviors at Lake Baroon this morning … to coincide with the launch of Seqwater’s summer safety campaign.
The ‘Play It Safe’ campaign is aimed at teaching the public the dangers of lake and campsite environments.
Around 150-thousand Queenslanders are expected to head to their local lakes during the Christmas holidays.
Seqwater’s Communications Manager Mike Foster says people forget the risks.
Mike Foster: “Our lakes are a multi-use lakes so we have paddling, skiing, jet skiing in some cases, fishing, swimming so… it really is a lot of activities having to co-exist. So it’s really that level of awareness more than anything else.”
