The American Red Cross encourages families to be “water smart” this summer before heading out to pools, beaches and other swimming locations. Remember these water safety tips. Nobody should ever swim alone. Designate a “water watcher” who will keep a close eye and constant attention on children and weaker swimmers in, on and around water until the next water watcher takes over. Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear properly fitted U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets around water, but don’t rely on life jackets alone. Reach or throw, don't go. In the event of an emergency, reach or throw an object to the person in trouble and tell them to grab on. Don’t go in. You could be in danger of drowning yourself.
