Children can easily get lost on crowded beaches. Give your child a wristband with the name and with your (mobile) telephone number or place on the beach. You pick up a free wristband at 1 of the beach posts. Agree on a fixed spot on the beach, for example the 'Miffy poles' or beach pavilions. Is your child missing for 15 minutes or more? Report this to the rescue brigade or the police. Lost children are often taken here.Follow live information on Twitter
The lifeguards of the Haaglanden Safety Region (VRH) and the Hague Voluntary Rescue Brigade (HVRB) ensure the safety of beach visitors, water sports enthusiasts and swimmers on the beaches of The Hague! Lifeguards ensure your safety during a day at the beach in Scheveningen, on the Zuiderstrand and at Kijkduin.
During a day at the beach or at the water you often see different colored flags fluttering at the post of the Rescue Brigade. But what exactly do those flags mean? Before you lie down on your towel, check which flag has been hoisted!
Below is a list of the meaning of the flags of the Rescue Brigade.
