Always actively supervise children when they’re both in and around the water; ensure that pools are secured with appropriate barriers; and require children to swim within designated areas that are within sight of guardians and certified lifeguards.

TEACH THEM EARLY

Teach children to get comfortable in the water and swim at an early age and educate them early about water safety.

Never let children swim alone; always designate swimming buddies before visiting the beach or pool.
