Launch of the 2017 Cranfield Code
The 2017 Cranfield Code sets out essential health and safety guidance to visitors, holiday makers and mariners coming to the picturesque Cranfield Bay area.
The Code has been the result of cross-border cooperation between a host of agencies and professional safety organisations who provide a strategic approach to safety both at sea and on the beach.
The Cranfield Code was first issued in 2011 and has now been updated in order to make it a truly comprehensive cross-border document. The code is fully supported by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, the Irish Coast Guard, Louth County Council, Maritime and Coastguard Agency, Irish Coast Guard, Police Service Northern Ireland (PSNI), Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI), Loughs Agency, Warrenpoint Harbour Authority and the Irish Water Safety Council.
The key priority of the Cranfield Code is to promote safety throughout Cranfield Bay.
If an emergency occurs when you are at Cranfield Beach, please go to the RNLI Lifeguard Station or Telephone 999, 112 and ask for the Coastguard.
Copies of the Cranfield Code are available at Cranfield RNLI Lifeguard Station.
