Instructions
Provide the Guides with the attached information on Water Safety.

Give each Patrol a water safety scenario to act out:

Beach safety:
1. You are on the beach 200m from the flags. You want to swim now because you are hot. Where should you swim?

Home water safety:
2. You and your 16 year old sister are babysitting you 3 year old cousin. You have been asked to give the child a bath before bed. What do you need to do to ensure safety?

River safety:
3. A boy has fallen into the river which is very cold and has a strong current. What do you do?

Farm water safety:
4. What are the types of water hazards on a farm? How would you protect a child from these?
