200282991-004Every summer, people pack their bathing suits, sunscreen, flip flops and a good book for a trip to the beach.

Swimming in the ocean takes different skills, so before you get your feet wet, it’s best to learn how to swim in the surf. You should also swim only at a lifeguard-protected beach, within the designated swimming area. Obey all instructions and orders from lifeguards.

  1. Keep Kids Within Arm’s Reach

    Especially in the sea, but also on land.

  2. Don’t Dive In

    2/3 of catastrophic neck injuries occur in open water and the sea.

  3. Knee Deep Is Too Deep

    Strong winds, waves and currents create dangerous rip currents that can sweep a child out to sea.

  4. Know Before You Go

    Know your flags – Red means stop; Green means go.

  5. Take Frequent Breaks

    Every hour take a sun, water or bathroom break.
