Safe Swim Spots
Circle the correct answer, True or False, for each statement.
True   1. The best place to swim is one that has qualified lifeguards. If there is no supervision, always make sure you go with a buddy... never alone.
True   2. WEEDS... It's pretty creepy to swim through weeds as they can get tangled in your legs and cause trouble. If you get trapped, don't struggle... take it easy with slow movements to free yourself.
True   3. AFTER DARK... Don't do it. Supervision is impossible. If you go under you might not be spotted.
True   4. CURRENT... Sometimes you run into these in rivers. It's best to stay away from them. If you are caught, don't try to swim against it; swim with the flow and diagonally until you reach the shore.

1. Secure adequate facilities methods
