Explore essential water safety resources and tips

  • Supervise Always: Never leave children unattended around water, whether it’s a pool, bathtub, or any body of water.
  • Designate Water Watchers: In group settings, designate an adult as a “Water Watcher” to keep a close eye on the kids.
    • Fence it Off: Install a four-sided fence around your home pool, with self-closing and self-latching gates, to prevent unsupervised access.
    • Pool Alarms: Consider using pool alarms that sound an alert if someone enters the pool area.
    • Pool Covers: Use a sturdy safety cover when the pool is not in use to prevent accidental falls.
  • Early Swim Lessons: Consider enrolling your child in age-appropriate swimming lessons as early as possible to build water confidence.
  • Learn to Float: Teach your child to float and tread water to increase water safety.
    • Swim with a Buddy: Encourage children to swim with a buddy, even in familiar surroundings.
  • Use approved Life Jackets: When boating or participating in water activities, ensure that children wear proper life jackets.
  • Teach Pool Rules: Establish rules for pool play, such as no running or diving in shallow water.
  • Stay Away from Drains: Warn children to stay away from pool drains and openings to avoid entrapment.
  • CPR and First Aid Training: Consider taking CPR and first aid courses, and familiarize yourself with rescue techniques.
  • Watch for Rip Currents: Be aware of rip currents and teach children what to do if caught in one.
  • Ocean Caution: If swimming in the ocean, stay within designated swimming areas and pay attention to flags and lifeguards.
