Water Safety

When your children are in the water, it’s time to be alert.  As a general rule of thumb, a parent should be within arm’s reach of a young child at all times.  This rule is true whether they’re swimming in a pool, lake, ocean, or bathtub.  Parents of older children should stay close and keep eyes on their children at all times.

Drowning is the second leading cause of death for children ages 5-14. Summer is a great time for parents to ensure their children are equipped with essential water safety skills.
