However, 37 percent described their swimming skills as fair, lacking or nonexistent – including 13 percent unable to swim at all” Check out the rest of the article by clicking here.

It’s not too late to get your children safe around the water. ”The American Red Cross is urging everyone to learn how to swim and to learn water safety and lifesaving skills that can help save a life.”  Check out their article by clicking here.

Water Safety Tips for the Summer May 20, 2011

Summer swim season is just around the corner.  For many of us that means pool time!  While summer is a great time to be at the pool it is important to remember some simple tips to keep your children safer in and around water.

Here are some tips from the American Red Cross:

  • Maintain constant supervision. Watch children around any water environment (pool, stream, lake, tub, toilet, bucket of water), no matter what skills your child has acquired and no matter how shallow the water. For younger children, practice “Reach Supervision” by staying within an arm’s length reach.
  • Do not rely on substitutes. The use of flotation devices and inflatable toys cannot replace parental supervision. Such devices could suddenly shift position, lose air, or slip out from underneath, leaving the child in a dangerous situation.
  • Enroll children in a water safety course or Learn-to-Swim classes. Your decision to provide your child with an early aquatic experience is a gift that will have infinite rewards. These courses encourage safe practices.
  • Parents should take a CPR course. Knowing these skills can be important around the water and you will expand your capabilities in providing care for your child.
