Summer is coming! Kids will be swimming! And you want them to be safe doing so. I can help!
The CDC says that drowning is the #1 cause of unintentional death among kids ages 1-4. And the #2 cause for kids ages 5-9. So here are some helpful tips to keep kids safe around the swimming pool:
- Teach them how to swim! Or make sure they wear a US Coast Guard approved life jacket.
- Never leave them unattended around the water, make sure an adult can supervise.
- Tell them to stay away from drains.
- Maintain your pool if you have one and secure it with barriers and covers.
- Learn CPR!
