Awareness Provides Water Safety Tips
Always swim with a buddy and never swim alone.
Know your swimming limits and stay within them. Don't try to keep up with a stronger swimmer or encourage others to keep up with you.
Swim in supervised areas only.
Watch out for the "dangerous too's" - too tired, too cold, too far from safety, too much sun, too much strenuous activity.
Most important, never leave your child unsupervised in or near any body of water - not even for one second. For more swimming and water safety tips and other information, access the summer issue of the Health Awareness newsletter, Fitness News at www.jeffersonhospital.org/tjuh/pubs/fitness.html
