Water Safety Tips for Kids and Parents


Both spring break and summer are just around the corner, so now is a great time for parents and children to refresh their water safety skills. Planning ahead can make a day at the beach, pool or water park fun and relaxing for everyone.

Before you go:

Most drowning accidents involving children under five years old happen at a residential pool. Families with backyard pools should make sure they use appropriate safeguards, like a latched four foot high isolation fence around the pool area with an alarm. You should also keep the pool covered when not in use, and keep safety devices within reach at all times.

Even if you do not own your own pool, parents should get themselves CPR trained and carry a first-aid kit when they go out with their kids for the day.
