Taxi drivers in Londonderry have set up a scheme aimed at helping people who may be feeling suicidal.
"Taxi Watch" will train drivers in counselling skills to help them if they meet anyone who is wanting to take their own life.
Rescue kits are also being provided for drivers to keep in their cars in case they come across an incident.
Eamonn O'Donnell from North West Taxi Proprietors said drivers need to know how to act quickly.
"On numerous occasions taxi drivers have been the ones who phone for the search and rescue around the city," he said.
"But time is of the essence when somebody hits the water, so what this initiative is about is giving the taxi driver the ability, training them and giving them the equipment to actually make an intervention themselves."
