Here's to a Safe and Fun Summer on the Water

Unintentional drowning is the leading cause of death in children ages 1-4. It is nothing like what is portrayed on TV and in movies…it is a SILENT killer, but it’s completely preventable. If your summer plans include any amount of time poolside, boating, or on the beach, you’ll want to make sure you’re practicing good water safety. Anywhere there is water, there is a risk of drowning — especially for children and other inexperienced swimmers.

Keep your family safe on the water this summer with these water safety tips.
