The Community Water Safety Honor is a component of the Aquatic Master Award .
Satisfactorily pass the American Red Cross -Water Safety Aid or YMCA course in Lifesaving or its equivalent, or pass the following requirements:
1. Have the Swimming Honor.↑Jump back a section
2. Know the value of disrobing before making a swimming rescue. Practice disrobing on dry land in 20 seconds or less. Disrobe yourself of your shoes, socks, pants, belt, and shirt. Don't be alarmed-you are allowed a swimming suit underneath!
Wearing your normal clothes in a rescue situation is dangerous. Normal cotton clothes absorb lots of water. They will weigh you down and make it much harder for you to swim for yourself.
