Summer Water Safety: Here Is the Key to Prevent Drownings!

The temperatures are heating up, and that means it’s time to get in the water. Many community pools are already open and summer vacations to the lake are just around the corner. One of the most important things for water safety cannot be stressed enough.

Adult supervision. 

Most drowning incidents occur when a child has been out of a parent’s sight for less than five minutes. Make sure an adult is paying attention when children are around all water areas including lakes, pools and piers. Make sure each parent is aware of who's supervising the kids.
