Never dive headfirst, especially at the beach or the lake.

Any beach with breaking waves may have rip currents which cause deaths every year. Alert swimmers to these tips at the beach:

  • Stay at least 100 feet away from piers and jetties.
  • If caught in a rip current, swim parallel to the shore or float or tread water until out of the current, then swim toward shore.
