Memorial Day weekend is around the corner, and many people are going to be enjoying the long weekend at the beach, by the pool or on a boat.
While you’re planning your fun in the sun, keep these water safety tips in mind:
– At the beach: Shuffle your feet to avoid stepping on a stingray, and always swim with a friend.
– At the pool: Designate someone to watch children who are around the pool, and learn CPR and basic water rescue skills.
– On the boat: Don’t operate watercraft while impaired, and keep a life jacket on board for each person.
