5 tips for summer swim safety

While you’re out there splish-splashin’ and having a blast in the water, don’t forget to use caution.   

  • Always swim with a buddy. If something goes wrong, you’ll have someone nearby to assist.
  • Only swim in designated areas. There’s a reason why certain areas are deemed off limits for swimming, so don’t risk it!
  • Maintain constant supervision of children. When it comes to accidents on the water, every second counts!
  • Don’t engage in horseplay near water.
  • Children should be equiped with a proper fitting life jacket to ensure better safety and accident prevention. 

For more information and tips, contact your doctor. If you do not have a doctor, call 1-800-Doctors or visit to find a family physician right for you.
