Drowning is the LEADING cause of injury death to children ages 1-4. To better protect your children:
1.      Provide constant, vigilant, adult supervision around any type of water in and outside the home, and during water play.
2.      Prevent unsupervised access to pools and spas with barriers and alarms.
3.      Learn how to perform rescue breathing and CPR. Keep a phone and shepherds hook poolside.
4.      Enroll your child into swim lessons.
5.      Install and maintain drain covers that prevent entrapment and entanglement.
