Water Safety

If your party is at a pool or beachside, make sure there is a lifeguard or an experienced swimmer on deck. Have a swimming partner with you too, so if anything happens that person can help you or call for help. If you are not an experienced swimmer, stay in the shallow part of the water. And more important, don’t drink and swim.
