Warm weather brings us outside and for most of us, it brings us poolside with our families and pets. Along with splashes and smiles comes a very real risk of potential danger. As adults and parents, we must maintain vigilance around water.
Here is a partial list of water safety measures to instill when we are outside at our backyard pool, community water park, lake event, or lazy river.
Maintain ACTIVE adult supervision
Have an alarmed pet door
Install a self-closing and locking pool gate
Alarms on doors and windows leading to the pool area
Safety drain cover for spa
CPR and 911 instructions posted
Keep phone within reach
Life jackets save lives
Have ring buoy and noodles
Water safety classes for the whole family
Drowning is a quick and silent killer!
I hope you keep safe and cool during the summer swim season.
