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
