Water Safety Tips
Supervision is Key to Safety
Always designate an adult to supervise your child/teen at all times
Know Your Limits
No matter how good a swimmer you are, it is easy to misjudge the water or your skills. If you are tired, rest and stay out of the water. Drowning happens to even the strongest swimmers who become too tired to make it back to shore.
Beware of Rivers
Many lakes and rivers are cold enough to cause hypothermia, even in the summer. Calm rivers can hide dangerous undercurrents, rocks and tree branches. Rivers are unpredictable and should be avoided.
Wear a Life Jacket
Even strong swimmers can benefit from a life jacket. Wear a life jacket when swimming, boating, innertubing or rafting. Play toys such as water wings, air mattresses and swim noodles are not safety devices.
Learn What To Do in an Emergency
Respond quickly when someone appears to be in trouble. Know your location and contact medical personal quickly.
