General Water Safety Tips

General Water Safety Tips

Learn to swim. The best anyone can do to stay safe in and around water is to learn to swim. Always swim with a buddy; never swim alone. To enroll in a swim course, register on our online store!

Swim in areas supervised by a lifeguard

Read and obey all rules and posted signs. 

Children or inexperienced swimmers should take precautions, such as wearing a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device (PFD) when around the water.

Watch out for the dangerous "too's" - too tired, too cold, too far from safety, too much sun, too much strenuous activity.

Set water safety rules for the whole family based on swimming abilities (for example, inexperienced swimmers should stay in water less than chest deep)

Be knowledgeable of the water environment you are in and its potential hazards, such as deep and shallow areas, currents, depth changes, obstructions and where the entry and exit points are located. The more informed you are, the more aware you will be of hazards and safe practices.

Pay attention to local weather conditions and forecast. Stop swimming at the first indication of bad weather.

Use a feet-first entry when entering the water.

Enter headfirst only when the area is clearly marked for diving and has no obstructions.

Do not mix alcohol with swimming, diving or boating. Alcohol impairs your judgment, balance, and coordination, affects your swimming and diving skills, and reduces your body's ability to stay warm.

Know how to prevent, recognize and respond to emergencies.
