Keeping Kids Safe Near Water
As the warmer weather arrives, and summer time fun begins, parents and children must be alert and prepared when it comes to pool and water safety.
The most important tip from children's heath care professionals is for parents to always keep their eyes on their kids around water whether at a pool, a water park or at the beach.
Swim lessons are powerful and important and recommended instead of depending on floating devices for safety.
When choosing a life jacket, make sure that the life jacket is Coast Guard certified. The label on the back will give you weight parameters and who the life jacket is suited.
Remember to never rely on noodles, or other flotation devices to save your child's life.
