Public Safety Tip
Swim Safety Tips
Summer is in full effect and water activities are a great way to cool down and have fun. Water activities come with safety concerns and water enthusiasts should take precautionary measures to keep themselves and loved ones out of danger. The most severe and most feared water emergency is drowning. Drowning may not always look like someone in obvious distress. It can be fast and silent with very little splashing, waving, or yelling. Respond quickly when you notice someone displaying the following uncontrolled signs:
- Head low in the water, mouth at water level
- Head tilted back with mouth open
- Eyes glassy and empty, unable to focus
- No response when you ask if they’re ‘OK’
- Eyes closed
- Hair over forehead or eyes
- Not using legs – Vertical
- Hyperventilating or gasping
- Trying to swim in a particular direction but not making progress
- Trying to roll over on the back
- Appear to be climbing an invisible ladder
Here are some general water safety tips to get you and your loved ones through another summer of fun in the water:
- Never swim alone.
- Never, ever leave children unattended.
- Maintain constant supervision of children and inexperienced swimmers.
- Assign a “Water Guardian” to watch children who are in, near, or around water.
- If a child is missing, check the water first. Seconds count in preventing death or disability.
- Inexperienced swimmers should wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket.
- Stay hydrated! Just like any other physical activity, you sweat when you swim and need to drink water regularly.
- Wear sunblock of at least SPF 15 and reapply frequently.
- Immediately get out of the water when you see lightning or hear thunder.
- Stay sober! Refrain from consuming alcoholic beverages. Inebriation can significantly impair your ability to swim or assist others in danger
