*** A STOLEN RINGBUOY = A STOLEN LIFE! THINK BEFORE TAMPERING!***
During their Suicide Prevention Patrols last night, our crews retrieved 16 ringbuoys from the water and surrounding areas.
These ringbuoys were tampered with and then discarded into the river by individuals who probably thought it was a great idea at the time but do not realise or even ignored what the consequences of their actions might be.
Please remember that if someone gets into difficulty and there is an empty box where the ringbuoy should be you are endangering and hampering any efforts to save that individuals life.
THINK BEFORE TAMPERING!!!
If you see anyone tampering or interfering with any of the ringbuoys located throughout the city and county then please contact Waterford Gardai immediately on (051) 305300.
