- Never leave children alone in or near water, including beaches,pools, bathtubs, sinks or toilets.
- Ensure that children swim in designated swimming areas while at the
beach or pool. Always check the depth of the water before diving. If
swimming in the ocean, check the current and under-tow.
- Be sure that every child wears fitting life jacket when on a boat or near water.
- Teach children how to swim. Get professional training, but never
rely solely on the swimming lessons to protect your child from drowning.
