Toyota has partnered with the LA Lifeguards by providing them with essential tools they need to save lives – durable trucks. For the kick-off of summer, Toyota and the LA Lifeguards held a community event at the Manhattan Beach pier where they shared some water safety tips and offered demonstrations for families visiting the area.

We put a 2016 Toyota 4Runner to the test and drove it to the event where my children learned a lot from the LA Lifeguards. Along with families visiting the pier, my children got a chance to sit in the Toyota lifeguard trucks, look at all the gear, and even try on some of the gear. It was a fun and educational way for them to learn about the importance of being safe while at the beach.

These are just a few important safety tips from the LA Lifeguards to help keep your children safe at our local beaches this summer:

  • Always swim near an open lifeguard station and never swim alone. Check with lifeguards for safe ocean and beach conditions.
  • Never dive into shallow water. Feet first every time. Use swim fins and a leash whenever you’re bodyboarding.
  • Keep a safe distance from piers and rocks, and always obey warning signs.
  • Never throw sand and always fill in holes before you leave the beach.
  • Protect yourself from the sun by using sunscreen and wearing a hat.
  • If you or someone in your group gets lost, always find the nearest lifeguard.
