WATER SAFETY TIPS FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN 

  • Only swim when there is a lifeguard on duty; never swim alone.
  • Adults should constantly watch children in and near the water. If multiple adults are in the vicinity designate a “water watcher” so everyone knows who’s “on duty.”
  • Inexperienced swimmers should take precaution and wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved personal flotation device (PFD) when in, on, or around water.
  • Children who are beginners should stay within an arm’s reach of an adult in the water.
