Water Safety

Saturday, May 31, 2008


With the coming of summer, it is time to find ways to cool off. Living in Arizona like I do, finding ways to keep cool is important. Some days the temps here have hit above 120. I know that sounds outrageous, but I've seen it happen for myself. Luckily we have a lot of ways to cool off. There are swimming pools and lakes all around the state. Plus, rivers and other bodies of water. I've been to a few myself over the last fourteen years I've lived here, and safety is important. Arizona Boating is fun and easy to do with the number of places to go. It is important to know how to boat safely though. I don't even know how many times I've heard about water related deaths in my state. Some from boating accidents, and others from drowning. Some of these deaths can be avoided so easily if you follow safety guidelines. Above all, don't drink and hit the water, especially if you are boating. We aren't allowed to drink and drive, and we are most certainly allowed to boat and drink either. Boating Operating Under the Influence only raises the chances of accidents happening. In order to learn more about boating safely there are places where you can go. Boating Education Online is easy to find. It could mean the difference between life and death.
