Austin is full of opportunities to have fun in the water... Be Safe!If you’re like us, you’re looking forward to a fun summer filled with fun, whether it’s boating on Lake Travis, tubing the Comal, riding your motorcycle, visiting friends and family, or just relaxing at home. However, in the midst of all these fun activities, it’s important to keep in mind your own safety and the safety of those around you.

Summer water safety will be especially important this year. The weather will be nice, and the lakes and rivers are very full from all of that rain we’ve experienced recently. Many people will want to enjoy the water, but accidents can happen quickly. Here are a few important safety tips to remember if you’re out on the water this summer:

  • Never swim alone.
  • Don’t swim or operate a motor vehicle if you’ve been drinking. Remember, driving a boat while drinking is still drunk driving.
  • Always wear a life vest.
  • Make sure that you know how to swim and that everyone with you knows how to swim.
  • Learn CPR.
  • Stay aware of the weather-it can change rapidly!
  • Be sure to wear sunscreen.
  • Use common sense! Stay alert at all times, observe buoys and other boundaries, operate your boat at a safe speed, and be respectful of those around you.

We hope you and your loved ones have a happy, fun, and safe summer However, if you are involved in an accident, be sure to contact Shefman Law.
