You can prevent accidents before they happen! Learn CPR, have emergency numbers handy, and use these tips to make sure staying cool in summer is fun and safe for all:

  • Never leave children alone near water bodies, including pools, lakes, creeks, rivers, beaches, ponds or drainage ditches.
  • Constantly watch children when swimming or playing near water. They need a certified lifeguard or responsible adult within reach.
  • Do not allow children to swim in any water after heavy rains or flooding, since swollen water can hide hazards below the surface.
