Press play to hear a Public Service Announcement from the Atlantic County Division of Public Health.

Hello, I'm Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson. We all enjoy taking a refreshing dip on a hot day, but it's important to always swim with caution.

Each year about 4,000 people die nationwide from unintentional drowning.

Protect yourself and the ones you love from water-related injuries by designating a responsible adult to watch young children while they're swimming or playing around water.

Also, swim with a buddy and select sites that have a lifeguard on duty. Avoid drinking alcohol before, during or after swimming or boating.

When you swim, be sure to swim healthy. We all share the water we swim in. Do your part by practicing good hygiene.

So go ahead and make a splash, by swimming safe and healthy.

For more information about healthy swimming, contact the Atlantic County Division of Public Health at 645-5971, that number again is 645-5971.
