Public Safety Tip of the Day: Spring Break Tips:


While swimming…
Jumping into the water without a lifeguard is putting yourself at risk. Even the most experienced swimmer can get caught in an undertow. In case you get caught in a rip current, don’t bother swimming against it. Instead, swim parallel to shore until the rip passes. Try to stay within the designated swimming area and always swim with a buddy. Also know the flag system for water safety:
-Red Flag: Stay out of the water because of strong undertow and riptides.
-Yellow Flag: Use CAUTION in the water. There are some undertow and riptides possible.
-Blue Flag: Calm water. Swim safely.

In the hot tub…
Drinking in the hot tub might sound like a good idea, since pretty much every MTV video makes it look glamorous. But low and behold, MTV is not an educational resource. (shocker!) Alcohol can dialate blood vessels and lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. The effects of alcohol are felt sooner and stronger in a hot tub. It can lead to unconsciousness and drowning. Overall, just a bad idea.


Thank You
