Did you know that May is National Water Safety Month?
The Summer season brings water fun and games that children adore. Some of our best family memories involve the water. In the last few years, we have watched our own daughter turn into a fish. She simply loves the water.
As parents and caregivers we must remember kids water safety tips and be aware of pool drain entrapment during the summer season. We can still have fun, but safety needs to remain at the fore front.
Even if you think you may know a lot about water safety, it’s always a great idea to get a refresher course before the Summer season when we are most likely to be around pools, lakes, beaches and waterparks.
The ZAC Foundation is a great resource to find out more information about keeping children safe around water.
