Whether you are an expert swimmer or do not yet know how to swim, or perhaps are caring for children swimming, there are safety tips to ensure swimming safety. Here are 10 swimming safety tips to utilize every time you or your children swim:

  1. Check weather and water conditions before getting into any water.
  2. Never swim alone. Invite a friend or family member to accompany you.
  3. Watch children at all times when they are in or around water.
