Commit to Being Water Smart!
Warmer weather means enjoying New Jersey’s beaches, lakes, and rivers. Commit to being ‘water smart’ by having swimming skills and knowing how to help others.
It only takes a moment. A child or weak swimmer can drown in the time it takes to reply to a text, check a fishing line or apply sunscreen. Death and injury from drownings happen every day in home pools and hot tubs, at the beach or in oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams.

The Red Cross believes that by working together to improve water competency – which includes swimming skills, water smarts and helping others – water activities can be safer… and just as much fun.
