Summer is almost here and since we are surrounded by water and pools, it is important to be safe around the water.
Don't take chances overestimating your swimming skills. Swim only in designated areas and never swim alone. No one can anticipate changing ocean currents, riptides, sudden storms or other hidden dangers.
If you do get caught in a rip tide, don’t panic. Swim parallel to shore until you feel the pull stop. You can then swim back to shore.
Keep an eye on children! Remember, it only takes a few seconds for a small child to wander away. Children have a natural curiosity and attraction to water.
Have a safe summer.
