NOTE: The lazy days of summer are here! Whether you are in your backyard pool or a public facility, take the following precautions with your water-loving kids:
- Sign your kids up for swim lessons
- Parents, caregivers and pool owners should learn CPR
- Know how to get emergency help (e.g. access to a phone to call 9-1-1, poolside life preserver, available lifeguard, etc.)
- Assign a water watcher. This person should:
- not be under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- put down his or her cell phone
- avoid other activities
- supervise even if lifeguards are present
- switch off with another adult for breaks
- Blow-up water wings, toys, rafts, air mattresses and life jackets provide a false sense of security and should never be used as a substitute for learning how to swim and adult supervision
