Heading to the lake or ocean this summer?
- Swimming in an open body of water (river, lake or ocean) is different from a pool.
- Don't let kids swim without close adult supervision.
- Lakes or ponds might be shallow near the bank but get deep quickly away from shore.
- Be aware of hidden hazards like limited visibility, depth, distances and drop-offs, currents and tides.
- Always swim in designated areas.
Open water becomes deep quick, ALWAYS watch your kids in the water!
