Have fun - But be Safe.The water is a great place to play! Swimming, boating, and other water-related activities are excellent ways to get the physical activity and health benefits needed for a healthy life. This summer stay safe and have a great time playing in the water with these (hopefully) helpful tips!
Adult supervision is important for water safety.It doesn’t take long- only a quick glance away from your child can be enough time for your child to be underwater. Supervising adults should maintain eye contact and stay within arm’s reach of children. About one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger. For every child who dies from drowning, another 5 receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.
Be aware of your surroundingsMother nature is a powerful force and should not be taken lightly. Large waves can carry several thousands of pounds of water in each wave and can not only knock you over, but a strong undertow can even drag you out to sea. Rip currents kill more people on average than bush fires, cyclones, floods, and shark attacks, according to a new study.
Know your limitationsSo often in dealing with the water we underestimate the physical fitness needed. Don't take on challenges that are overly risky. Does it look dangerous? Then maybe skip it. Better safe than sorry.
