Radio Spot: Think About Water Safety for Your Family

The American Red Cross recommends:

Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards.

Use the buddy system! Do not allow anyone to swim alone. Even at a public pool or a lifeguarded beach.

Ensure that everyone in the family learns to swim well. Enroll in age-appropriate Learn-to-Swim courses.

Never leave a young child unattended near water... teach children to always ask permission to go near water.

Follow these safety tips and make sure swimming this summer is as safe as it is fun.
