An open day is being held by the Nith Inshore Rescue team.
It's taking place at the Caerlaverock Boat House this Saturday 11 July, from 14:00 to 18:00.
The 'St John' lifeboat will be on display, along with other rescue equipment, and HM Coastguard, Scottish Fire & Rescue Service from Dumfries Community Fire Station, and St Michael’s Services, will all be attending.
At 4pm, the new inland rescue boat 'Cauley' will have its official naming ceremony.
The public are welcome, and refreshments will be available.
United Utilities are reinforcing calls for people not to swim in the region's reservoirs, rivers and lakes, as the school holidays approach.
The warnings come after a man died in Windermere and another in the River Esk in the past fortnight.
Two years ago a man drowned in Thirlmere, which is managed by the company.
