Water Safety Message Reading This Could Save a Life!

by | May 28, 2020 | Kids Activities

Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of 5 in the state of California, and the second leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of 14. Education and vigilance with your children around water cannot be stressed enough. The Stop Drowning Now Foundation has developed a Safer 3 message which has been adopted by the National Drowning Prevention Alliance. The Safer 3 includes:
Safer Water – Install: fencing around pools, water surface break alarms in pools, and alarms on doors leading outside.
Safer Kids – Educate children to never go in or around water without an adult supervisor. Teach them how to call 9-1-1. Enroll you children in formal swim lessons. Always supervise swimmers, no matter how excellent you think they are.
Safer Response – Learn CPR, so that if you ever do have to rescue your child from the bottom of the pool, precious minutes are not lost while waiting for an emergency responder.
