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.
