Hydration
Prolonged and excessive sweating increases the risk that a service member will alter the delicate balance of blood-sodium concentration, causing a condition called hyponatremia. By MAJ Zachery Schneider, Naval Safety Center. (U.S. Navy photo by PH1 Daniel Woods)

Boating 
Enjoying the water in the comforts of your boat is one thing. Rescuing another boater who didn't take the time to prepare can be stressful - for the rescuer and boater. By CDR Paul Lanzilotta, VAW-126 (Photo composite by John Williams, CNSC)

Lightning
Lightning can kill people directly or indirectly. To reduce lightning-related injuries and fatalities, and to reduce damage to ordnance, the DoD Ammunition and Explosives Safety Standards outline requirements for terminating ordnance operation. By GYSGT Amber Allison, Naval Safety Center. (U.S. Navy photo by MC3 Jon Husman)
