Imprudence can cost us health or life – emphasizes Urszula Kierzkowska, councilor of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship, chairwoman of the Law, Local Government, Security and Public Order Committee, quoted in the communiqué.

“If someone sees such a board and goes to a guarded swimming pool, the action has passed the exam”

This year, for the first time, entities authorized to perform water rescue were involved in the identification of particularly dangerous places by the waters in Mazovia.

As Paweł Błasiak, president of the Water Volunteer Rescue Service of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship and president of the Capital Water Rescue Service, points out, it is not worth ignoring the signs. – How many people have avoided death in the water thanks to the marking of black water points, we will not know. But if someone sees such a board and thinks that for some reason someone put it in this place and goes to the guarded swimming pool, the action passed the exam – he points out. – It is also worth remembering that one of the elements of water safety is also polishing swimming skills and the proper use of measures ensuring this safety. Putting on life jackets and life jackets correctly saves lives.
