National Water Safety Month in May prepares us for recreational activities.
Water is an attraction during the summer months. Whether we’re drawn to lakes and rivers or public pools and water slides, safety is a necessary concern. We use the water for leisure, sport, and general outdoor relaxation. Boating with or without motors, swimming, fishing and many other kinds of recreation take place in and around the water.
- Protecting children around water should always be a number one safety concern.
- An adult should always be supervising children around water, whether it’s a pool, lake.
- Follow all facility rules and don’t rely on floatation devices for keeping your child safe.
- In the water, make sure an adult joins the child.
