THE State Emergency Service (SES) has warned
Riverlanders not to become another drowning
statistic, after local crews attended 25 search and
rescue incidents in the past 16 months.
The local SES has teamed up with the
South Australian Fire and Emergency Services
Commission (SAFECOM) to spread the message
of water safety in the lead up to summer.
SAFECOM chief executive officer David
Place said figures in the Royal Life Saving
National Drowning Report 2014 revealed 14
people drowned in SA between July 1, 2013 and
June 30, 2014.
“It’s still of concern that we are seeing this
number of people drowning,” he said.
“Everyone needs to think carefully about their
safety, whether they are swimming, fishing, or
A local SES spokesperson said it was
important to remain vigilant when participat-
ing in water activities, no matter how familiar
Riverlanders are with the river.
“Pay attention to any advice signage relating
to local conditions,” he said.
“If going boating, plan your trip, check that
you have all of your safety equipment, monitor
“Studies have shown that you can significantly
improve your safety if you wear your life jacket.
“Limit your consumption of alcohol if under-
taking water activities.”
Mr Place said the drowning report also
showed that men accounted for 81 per cent of all
drowning deaths in Australia in the last financial
“Alcohol was involved in 18 per cent of all
drownings,” he said.
“We see high levels of alcohol being con-
sumed, a disregard for safety equipment such
as life jackets and, in some cases, men ignoring
weather warnings when boating or fishing.
“Almost half (49 per cent) of those who were
known to have consumed alcohol recorded a
blood alcohol reading that was four times the
legal limit or higher.”
SES: keep it
LOCAL residents are being encouraged to live
in harmony with backyard brush-tailed possums.
Foundation for National Parks and
Wildlife CEO Susanna Bradshaw said it
is time to regard the furry backyard neigh-
bour as a survivor rather than a pest.
“Possums are quite remarkable and super cute
when looked at with fresh eyes,” Ms Bradshaw
“We know they’re noisy during mating sea-
sons and they sometimes try to live in our roofs,
but they’re actually clinging onto much smaller
pockets of land.
“People run into problems with possums when
their natural habitat shrinks due to increasing
urban sprawl or after devastating fires.”
Ms Bradshaw said residents need to imple-
ment strategies to make their backyards more
suitable for possums.
“One of the best ways of keeping possums out
of your house is to leave big old trees in your
garden as they prefer to make homes in suitable
hollows,” Ms Bradshaw said.
“If you can’t see any hollows, why not
encourage them into a nest box instead?
“I want to put the challenge out there for eve-
ryone to try and put themselves in the brushies’
shoes over the hot Christmas period and show
them some extra love.”
Make ‘brushies’ welcome
Locals should regard possums as survivors, not
pests, according to the Foundation for National
Parks and Wildlife.
