Stay Cool, Stay Safe. Taking a dip is a fun and healthy way to beat the heat. To make sure everyone stays safe, remember:  Water is best enjoyed with friends. Buddy up before you go in, and designate a sober swimmer!  Drowning is quieter and faster than you think. Keep a close eye on friends and family.  Swimming is a skill - know your limits and use a personal flotation device if necessary. Stay in the shallows, where you’ll have access to helpers if something goes wrong. If something bad happens: Call 911
