Summer is just around the corner and that means swimming!

Channel 3 Kids Camp wants everyone to have a safe and fun summer. Whether swimming in a pool, playing by a river or riding waves in the ocean there are important rules to follow.

 

 

 

WATER SAFETY MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU TEACH YOUR CHILD.

 

  • Only swim in designated swim areas.

  • Teach children water safety and swimming skills as early as possible.

  • Never leave a young child unattended near water and do not trust a child’s life to another child; teach children to always ask permission to go near water.

  • Don’t think you’ll hear a child who’s in trouble in the water; child drowning is a silent death, with no splashing to alert anyone that the child is in trouble.

  • Even if you do not plan on swimming, be cautious around natural bodies of water including ocean shoreline, rivers and lakes. Cold temperatures, currents and underwater hazards can make a fall into these bodies of water dangerous.

  • Install and use barriers around your home pool or hot tub. Safety covers and pool alarms should be added as additional layers of protection.

  • Actively supervise kids whenever around the water—even if lifeguards are present.

  • Keep children away from pool drains, pipes and other openings to avoid entrapments.

  • Never swim alone, always use a buddy system.

  • Always have a phone nearby and in an emergency call 911.

  • Follow these swimSMART rules and have a safe and fun summer!
