Pool Party Safety Tips

  • ALWAYS supervise kids in and around the water.

  • Learn your child’s ability in and around the water.

  • Assign a water watcher (an adult that commits their time to actively supervise everyone in the water).

  • Always use a US Coast Guard approved life jacket on kids (specially for non-swimmers). Make sure if children take off their life jacket to go inside, they put them on before getting back in the water.

  • Learn CPR.

  • Teach kids NEVER to swim alone.
