Dexter’s Safety Tips:
- Learn to swim.
- Never swim alone. Always have someone with you when you are swimming.
- Children should always swim with an adult.
- Swim and play in safe places or designated areas only.
- Stay away from canals. Canals are not safe places for anyone to play around or swim in – big or small, young or old!
- Owners of dogs or other pets should be cautious of what their pet is ingesting while near canals. The District periodically spreads potentially poisonous rodent bait to control squirrel burrowing.
- When at lakes or reservoirs – follow rules set up by the authorities.
- Always wear a life vest while boating or on the lake or out on the ocean. Obey all hazard signs – they are there to save lives.
- Look before you leap or dive – and only leap and dive where it is allowed and safe.
- Know your limits – how good a swimmer you are, the place you are swimming, where you can and can’t go, how far you can swim, etc.
- Don’t mix alcohol consumption with recreation.
- The water may look still but there are strong currents beneath.
- Fish at designated sites only.
