Originally from Pakistan, Babar and his family love spending time at the beach and enjoying the sunshine and waves.
What can we learn from Babar's story?
Research before you leave home
Beach safety starts at home. We can all research the beach and ocean conditions before we even leave home by using an app like Beachsafe.
Pack for a safe day
Making sure we have all the right things to keep us safe both in and out of the water.
Look for the flags.
By swimming between the flags we can make sure that someone will be there to help us if we get into trouble.
Always watch your children
Even children who are good swimmers can find themselves in trouble at the beach. Always stay close and observe your children.
Know your abilities
Understanding your own ability in the water is vital to staying safe. Make an effort to learn to swim, learn to float and learn to survive.
Enjoy the beach life
We can all spend time at the beach and it is a wonderful place to enjoy time with our family and friends.
