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.


Practice water safety. For more water safety tips, visit the website below.  Use #NationalWaterSafetyMonth to share on social media.


The World Waterpark Association, the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, The National Recreation & Park Association and the American Red Cross created National Water Safety Month. 


Jennifer lives happily in North Florida with her husband Scott and after a stroke and two brain surgeries her mom. While not blessed with children they dote on their four legged children four cats. I started writing after spinal surgery required second round of physical therapy to learn to walk yet again. While reading is a favorite hobby writing is something new with the launch of this blog and hopefully a fiction novel in the future.
