Agnes Davis’ 5 Tips to Water Safety:

1)Don’t panic.Floating on one’s back and treading water are great survival techniques; this allows the swimmer to conserve energy and be in a position to signal for help

2) Don’t dive into water. It’s dangerous since you can’t see the bottom of the water, and accidents can happen including serious spinal injury

3) Trust the help. Lifeguards are an important part of water safety. Only swim where lifeguards are present

4) Get a buddy. Swimming is more fun when you have a partner, please don’t swim alone

5) Invest in lessons. Swimming lessons, as noted by the Center of Disease Control, is the best prevention against drowning and staying safe
