Swim Safety Tips

 
·         Only swim when and where there is a lifeguard on duty; never swim alone.

·         Adults should constantly and actively watch their children.

·         Inexperienced or non-swimmers should wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket. 

·         Parents or guardians of young children should be within an arm’s reach.

·         Children and adults should not engage in breath holding activities.
