May is National Water Safety Month and with the largest recreational lake in the state in our backyard, it's important to keep water safety top of mind, especially as we get ready to kick off the busy boating and swimming season. As the best boat lift company at the Lake of the Ozarks, we know how vital it is to keep you and your family safe around the water and that's why we're providing some tips to keep top of mind this summer.
Top Water Safety Tips:
1. Always wear a lifejacket or have a floatation device handy
2. Do not run on the boat, dock, or bank next to the water
3. Know what is below the surface when jumping or diving
4. Never swim alone
5. Avoid swimming when water is rough
6. Only swim in open water areas (not in a slip or next to a dock)
7. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated
