Reading This Could Save a Life
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 is of utmost importance. The Stop Drowning Now Foundation has developed a "Safer 3" message that has been adopted by the National Drowning Prevention Alliance. The Safer 3 includes...
Safer Water Put upper locks on doors leading to pools or other bodies of water in your yard and be sure to lock pet doors, too.
Put fences around pools, covers on spas and pool alarms that sound when the surface water tension has been broken.
Safer Kids Educate children to never go in or around water without an adult supervisor. Teach them how to help or rescue another who may be struggling in the water without entering the water or putting themselves in danger and show them how to call 9-1-1.
Teach your children how to swim and how to float on their backs with their clothes on. Always have a designated water watcher while around any body of water with children.
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 emergency responders.
Reach out to Academy Swim Club for information about this program, swimming lessons or water safety - and a free private assessment lesson.
