Swim with a friend and never swim at a closed beach.

If you get caught in a strong current swim diagonally across and not against it.

If you need help stay calm and stick up your hand.

Never jump into water when you don't know how deep it is.

Always obey signs at lakes and rivers and consider swimming lessons that might save you or your family's life.
