  • Know local weather conditions and how to find out what is forecasted




  • Know how to prevent, recognize and care for hypothermia & heat emergencies




  • Never swim alone




  • Drinking alcohol while participating in water activities is very dangerous




  • Enter water feet first rather than head first if the depth is unknown Know your swimming limits




  • Do not try to keep up with someone with stronger skills or ask others to keep up with you




  • Watch for the "dangerous too's"- too tired, too cold, too far from safety or too much sun




  • Protect your skin with a high rating sunscreen, such as 15, which protects against both UVB and UVA rays. Reapply often.
