May is water safety month and it's a good time to think about how to keep your kids safe around water. Do you have a pool? Do your neighbors have a pool or hot tub or even a baby pool in the backyard? Remember to mention that to anyone who comes over to watch your kids. They can drown in an inch of water.
Barbara Flack from Aquatech Pools and Spas.net alerted me to water safety month.org.
Here are some water safety tips as we gear up for 80 degree days next week!
|Designate a “water watcher”|
| Learn to swim |
Don’t rely on water wings or other inflatable toys to keep a child safe. Always stay within an arm’s reach if your child can’t swim.
Secure all gates, doors, and windowsIf a child is missing, check the pool first
If a child is missing, check the pool first. Go to the pool and scan the pool bottom, surface and surrounding area. Every second counts.
