While swimming on weekends in one of the state’s natural lakes or streams, Alabama Power offered these safety tips:
Never swim alone. Anywhere there is water there is a risk of drowning.
An adult should always supervise children closely. This means no reading, talking on the phone or sending text messages. An adult should be within easy reach of infants, toddlers and weaker swimmers.
Enter shallow water feet first. It is never acceptable to dive in water less than nine feet deep.
