Swim Safe in Arizona This National Drowning Prevention Month

By Breyer Law Offices on May 1, 2015

Phoenix Swimming AccidentIf you’re an Arizona swimmer then you may already know that May is National Drowning Prevention Month and that this month is dedicated to helping you keep safe in the water. You may think that you know all the tips on how to prevent a swimming accident, but it never hurts to give yourself a refresher. Here are some of the most important swimming safety tips you should keep in mind:

  • Don’t swim while fatigued. This is easier said than done for some individuals. You may have a tight work schedule or feel that you need to swim every day. But the fact of the matter is that it is far better for you to wait until you are well rested to get into the pool. Getting in the pool while fatigued heavily increases your risk of experiencing a swimming accident.
  • Don’t horse around. You are an adult and you know that you shouldn’t have to be told not to horse around when you are in the swimming pool with your friends. But the fact is that older adults, whether male or female, like to rough house, too. Take care to not take things too far. If something makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, get out of the swimming pool…and quick!
  • Don’t try to swim on your own if you have never learned how to swim. If you’re an amateur, enroll in some swimming classes, and never practice unless there is a lifeguard nearby.

Swimming is a healthy, fulfilling activity, but it can also be dangerous. Every time you get into the water, enjoy yourself but remember to also respect the safety rules.
