Greystones Community Gardaí pass on water safety tips from

Learn how to swim

Swimming in the sea takes different skills.

Before you get your feet wet, it’s best to learn how to swim in the surf.

If you don’t know how to swim you should learn.

Restrict to paddling in the shallow water only and in the presence of a lifeguard.

Supervise Children

Children should be supervised by adults at all times while they are swimming or near water.

Adults supervising need to remain vigilant, never turn away or get distracted.

Not even for a moment.

Good Swim Practices

Always swim within your depth, parallel and close to shore and don’t swim after eating. Never use inflatable toys in open water or swim out after anything drifting.

Avoid staying in the water for extended periods when waters are still cold.

You risk hypothermia.

Lifeguard is on Duty

Swim when a lifeguard is on duty and in areas designated for swimming.

All swimmers should respect the rules for swimming and follow the direction of the lifeguard. Parents of young children should carefully supervise their children.

Even where a lifeguard is present.

Never Swim Alone

Always swim with others, never alone, no matter how tempting the sea is.

Accidents happen even to good swimmers.

Wear Lifejackets

Those boating should wear a properly fitting serviced lifejacket with crotch strap.

Shore anglers should also wear a lifejacket and be extremely vigilant for ocean swells.

Don’t Drink and Swim

Being under the influence of alcohol or drugs seriously impairs judgment and coordination. There is also an increased risk of injury or drowning.

Avoid Diving Headfirst

It is best to enter the water feet first.

Diving into shallow or murky water, or of unknown depth or underwater environment is dangerous.
