There’s no better time than the heat of the summer to refocus your commitment to water safety. With a reported 10 drowning deaths every single day, it’s imperative that we all do what we can to combat the risk. Particularly vulnerable to drowning are our children between one-to-four years of age. One of the most effective ways to reduce drowning risk is to participate in formal swimming lessons, especially for children and some other higher-risk populations, those with special needs.
Summer is officially here, and the heat is only going to ramp up over the next few months. For many people, the most popular way to escape the oppressive temperatures is to find some water to splash in. The culture surrounding water recreation is generations deep and satisfying as well. Grilling out, inviting family, friends, and neighbors to join in the fun, watching a sports game, having some cocktails, and blaring your favorite music, it’s a backyard culture we all know and love.
