Abu Dhabi Police have reminded residents of the potential dangers of swimming on the beach at night or early in the morning.

Abu Dhabi Police have organized an awareness program on steps people can take to prevent drowning and other swimming-related accidents. The program was conducted at Al Hadiryat Beach and Al Batin Beach in Abu Dhabi.

The drowning safety campaign included distributing leaflets with key guidelines and emergency numbers to people at the beach.

Police have urged beach visitors to avoid swimming at night or in the early hours of the morning, as it poses a great risk to life. They also warned of the dangers of leaving children unsupervised when swimming in the sea and stressed the need to obey beach signs. People should not swim in the open sea to avoid drowning.

The campaign was carried out with the participation of the Abu Dhabi Police General Command, the Abu Dhabi Civil Defense Authority, the Department of Municipalities and Transport and the Directorate of Vital Facilities and ribs. Its aim is to minimize and reduce instances of drowning in the emirate by raising awareness among the public.
