Drowning Prevention Awareness

It is extremely important to stay aware of the risks of drowning in pools and other water sources. This can be done by becoming familiar with preventative measures that can be taken to minimize drowning potential. 

The American Red Cross is offering a FREE online course concerning water safety for parents this summer. From their site: "The Water Safety for Parents and Caregivers Online Course focuses on developing an awareness of the risks of drowning and how to minimize those risks, especially for young children. This online course teaches parents and caregivers about the concepts of the circle of drowning prevention, water competency and the chain of drowning survival. It also provides guidance for applying water safety to common environments and situations where children are most at risk for drowning."
