  • Sheriff’s Corner: Exercise safety in the water with these tips

    By Brunswick County Sheriff John Ingram

    Summer is here, and many citizens are already enjoying spending time in the water. Sadly, we have already lost several individuals in our area to drowning accidents. I would like to offer some tips for water safety for both swimming pools and the beach.

    For the swimming pool:

    •If no lifeguard is on duty, make sure children are accompanied by an adult who is familiar with CPR and life-saving techniques.

    •For your home pool, post CPR instructions and 911 reminders on signage around your pool
