Do you know where your kids are?
With the summer of 2020 set to begin —and with kids staying home more often than not — backyard pools will become a hot-spot safety issue. Everyone's been so preoccupied by COVID-19, it would be easy to let your guard down.
HERE ARE FAST TIPS TO HELP YOU REMAIN DILIGENT ABOUT WATER SAFETY AND KID
• Provide close and constant attention to children you are supervising in or near water — including baby pools.
• Be aware that backyard pools in your neighborhood have adequate barriers, including four-sided fencing.
• Make sure your children have swimming and water-survival skills.
• Insist that children, inexperienced swimmers, and all boaters wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets.
