We are pleased to announce that Belfast has recently been accredited with a Purple Flag status.

Gaining the Purple Flag status reiterates what we already know to visitors to our city… that Belfast has a Safe and Welcoming night time economy.

We are extremely proud to have played a part in gaining the Purple Flag status.

In Novemember the adjudicators visited Belfast to carry out their assessment during which time they spent some time with our Volunteers while on our weekend Saftey Patrol.

We chatted about the types of incidents that we would come across on a regular basis including first aid, casualty extraction from the river and sucide prevention. We then give them a saftey briefing before they came with us on of our search and rescue boats so that they could see part of our City from the river.

A BIG congratulations to all involved.
