Summer Time Water Safety

Summer Time Water Safety

As summer is in full swing we always like to remind everyone to enjoy the nice weather but be safe also. We have put together some reminders that we think are important when it comes to swimming or being around water:

 

  • Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards.
  • Always swim with a buddy; do not allow anyone to swim alone. Even at a public pool or a lifeguarded beach, use the buddy system!
  • Ensure that everyone in the family learns to swim well. Enroll in age-appropriate water orientation and Learn-to-Swim courses.
  • Never leave a young child unattended near water and do not trust a child’s life to another child; teach children to always ask permission to go near water.
  • Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets around water, but do not rely on life jackets alone.

If you would like to see some more water tips please feel free to stop by the Red Cross Water Safety Website.

 

We wanted to Thank everyone for their service and for going above and beyond to help us!
