Health Tip: Be Safe at the Beach

Health Tip: Be Safe at the Beach

04/08/13

(HealthDay News) -- When your family is headed to the beach for some fun in the sun, it's a good idea to go over a few basic safety rules to keep everyone safe.

The American Academy of Pediatrics lists these safety rules when you're at the beach:

  • Ward off dehydration by making sure everyone in the family drinks plenty of water (or other drinks without carbonation or alcohol) before they feel thirsty.
  • Make sure everyone swims only in designated swim areas and within eyesight of a lifeguard.
  • Never allow anyone to swim alone.
  • Don't swim in rip currents; make sure all family members know if they are caught in a rip current to swim parallel to the shore and not against the current.
  • If it starts to storm, head away from the beach and seek shelter.
  • Pay attention to traffic if the beach allows cars.
