From worst case scenarios, to fun facts, Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum are helping to make outdoor adventure as safe and enjoyable as possible.  

Over 50 guides from 17 coastal organisations enjoyed a two-day event last week to share tips on how to safely make the most of the coast. 

On day one of the two-day event, the RNLI, Coastguard and adventure operators showcased their capabilities if the worst should happen while adventuring along the coast. Day two focused on bringing adventure providers together to share tips on making adventure days as safe and fun as possible.  

These sessions are invaluable in breaking down any potential barriers in communication between groups attending a casualty situation, and the practical sessions allow best practise to be shared to discuss group management, rescue scenarios and share knowledge and tips to new guides. 

Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum holds similar sessions throughout the year on a range of topics, all centred on sharing how to sustainably work and engage with coastal activities in a safe manner. 

Alec Denny from Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum said “The aim of these events is to facilitate organisations to work together to keep Pembrokeshire the safest and most exciting destination for coastal adventure activities – for the customers, the coastline and the wildlife that calls the coast home.”
