"Nothing is more important than watching children around water. Drownings can be prevented, and they should be. It’s so important to be reminded of water safety precautions."

Top Four Tips:

  • Never leave your child unattended around water. We know it sounds strict, but there is no room for compromise on this one. Babies can drown in as little as one inch of water.
  • Put the cell phone away, forget about all the other things you have to do and give young children 100 percent of your attention when they are near or around water.
  • Parents have a million things to do, but learning CPR should be on the top of the list. It will give you tremendous peace of mind – and the more peace of mind you have as a parent, the better.
  • Every child is different, so enroll children in swimming lessons when you feel they are ready.
