Always wear your helmet when you ride a bike!

  • Wear light or bright color clothes when riding.
  • Always wear your helmet when you're riding.
  • Ride with a friend or your parents.
  • Have a headlight and reflectors on your bike.
  • Learn and obey the traffic rules.

WHEN YOU ARE SWIMMING

  • Before you go around water, you should know how to swim.
  • When you do swim, do it with a friend or your family.
  • If you're going to dive, do it in deep water.
  • When you just learned how to swim it's best to stay in shallow water.
  • If you're not a good swimmer, wear a life jacket near the water.
  • Always wear a life jacket when you're in a boat even if you're a good swimmer.

WHEN YOU ARE ON THE COMPUTER

  • Tell your parents that you are going on-line.
  • If someone says something that you don't like tell your parents.
  • Don't go to a private chatroom without your parents.
  • Never tell anyone on-line your name, address or phone number.
