Tips for trip to the beach

Visiting the beach is a must during the holidays but be careful when you are in and around water. Here are safety tips:

. Swim between the red and yellow flags, as these areas are patrolled by lifeguards

. Swim with others

. Supervise children at all times

. Stay hydrated. Watch out for signs of dehydration such as red, dry skin, rapid/weak pulse and rapid, shallow breathing

. Don’t drink alcohol before you swim as it impairs your judgment

. Don’t dive into unfamiliar water as there may be rocks or other dangers

If you get caught in a rip current:

. Don’t panic

. Don’t try to swim straight back to the shore against the current as this will exhaust you

. Try to tread water or turn on your back and float (rip tides get weaker as they go further out)

. Raise one arm in the air and wave for help to alert people on the beach that you are in trouble and;

. Swim parallel to the beach, out of the current, and then use waves to help you get back to the beach.
