We provide and maintain lifebelts next to rivers and waterways in Oxford. Some lifebelts are owned by the Environment Agency and others by boatyards.
We have 100 lifebelt stations along the River Thames and other public waterside locations, which are labelled with an identifying number and phone number. Lifebelts are inspected once every 2 weeks in the summer and once every 4 weeks in the winter.
We work hard to ensure that should you ever need to use one, a lifebelt is available and in the best condition.
