Water and Boating Safety
It’s that time of year. Various local bodies of water provide plenty of access to recreational boating and swimming activities. A few basic precautions can drastically minimize risks for yourself and others:
- Wear a Personal Flotation Device (PFD), also aptly called a Life Jacket! Every boat should have a PFD for every person on board.
- Make sure the body of water matches your swimming skill level, and don’t go in the water unless you know how to swim.
- Learn CPR and basic rescue techniques.
- For caregivers: remember that the younger the child, the greater the risk. Be vigilant in keeping a close eye on kids near water.
