Keep Your Head Above Water

  • Practice water safety rules with your family before going in or on the water
  • Don’t go in alone! Be sure there is a lifeguard or responsible adult present when you swim
  • Always obey the lifeguard and the rules of the pool or beach
  • Keep your eye on the sky — don’t swim outdoors during or before storms or in strong winds
  • Slather on the sunscreen before you leave the house
  • Don’t go swimming directly after eating or you will get a cramp
  • Take it slow near the water — no running!
