Make sure young children are supervised at all times when near the beach, on a boat, or by a pool or hot tub. Don't swim alone or in bad weather. Learn to swim and teach your children to swim. We also recommend that you learn CPR in case of an emergency. 

Sun safety - Protect against sunburn and heat stroke. Wear sunscreen with at least a sun protection factor 15 or higher and apply it generously throughout the day. Wear a hat outdoors and a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes. Drink plenty of water, especially when in the sun or if you are sweating heavily. If you feel faint or nauseous, get into a cool place immediately.

Travel safety - Do not drink and drive or travel with anyone who has been drinking. Take along a first aid kit to help you be prepared for common emergencies. Wear your seatbelt at all times.
