The next Irish Meteorological Society virtual talk will be focused on the ‘Be Summer Ready’ campaign, with Evelyn Cusack, Head of Forecasts in Met Éireann, will take place on Thursday 27th May at 7pm. Please register for the talk in advance on Eventbrite or join the talk live here.
The BE SUMMER-READY campaign is part of the Government of Ireland initiative to provide information to the general public on issues which may affect them during the summer months in Ireland. The campaign complements a long standing and very successful “Be Winter Ready” public information campaign.
During the summer months, Ireland’s waterways and beaches become very popular. More people visit the countryside, engage in outdoor pursuits, visit family farms or take holidays abroad. With these activities there are associated risks and this booklet provides information on these. In addition, people die in Ireland in drowning accidents, farm accidents, on our roads or succumb to summer related illnesses.
