Tap for a

Summertime is full of vacations, pools, lakes, oceans and other fun water related sports and activities. Water is always a centric part of summer fun, but it’s also a place where safety must come first.  Here are a few tips to help you be water safe.

Top Tips

Water Smart
  1. Fence pools and spas with adequate barriers, including four-sided fencing.
  2. Learn swimming and water safety survival skills.
  3. Children, inexperienced swimmers, and all boaters should wear U.S Coast Guard-approved life jackets.
  4. Always swim in a lifeguarded area.
  5. Always swim with a buddy.
  6. Don’t use alcohol or drugs before or while swimming, diving or supervising swimmers.
  7. Provide close and constant attention to children you are supervising in or near water.

Know What to Do in an Emergency

  1. If a child is missing, check the water first: seconds count in preventing death or disability!
  2. Alert the lifeguard, if one is present.
  3. Recognize the signs of someone in trouble and shout for help. A swimmer needs immediate help if they: a) Are not making forward progress in the water. b) Are vertical in the water but unable to move or tread water. c) Are motionless and face down in the water.
  4. Rescue and remove the person from the water (without putting yourself in danger).
  5. Ask someone to call emergency medical services (EMS). If alone, give 2 minutes of care, then call EMS.
  6. Begin rescue breathing and CPR.
  7. Use an AED if available and transfer care to advanced life support.
