Water and Sun Safety
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Almost everyone loves summer. Being outside feels great after a cold winter. Summer is short, so everyone tries to do as much as they can before winter comes again. It is important to stay safe in summer, too. A lot of people get hurt doing things that don't seem very dangerous.
 
2     Many people like to be near water in the summer. There may be a pool at your house or a pond that you can swim in when it is hot. You might even live near a beach. Water is a great way to stay cool in the summer. But if you aren't careful, it is very easy to get in over your head.
 
3     One of the easiest ways to keep yourself safe is to learn to swim. Check where you live for classes that can teach you how to swim. After you learn, never swim alone. Take a buddy with you. That way there will always be another person near you if you run into trouble.
 
4     Try to swim where there is a lifeguard. This isn't always possible especially if you are swimming in a pool or pond near your house. You will have to be more careful in these areas.
