At Home Water Safety

 Everyone is still talking about the Super Bowl. Can you believe they did not hand the ball off to Marshawn Lynch??? Some people were blown away by Katy Perry's performance, some people were laughing out loud at the Doritos and Bud Light commercials. However, one commercial in particular resignation with us at Waterworks Aquatics.

Water safety is a year-round importance for us at Waterworks Aquatics. Year-round means Summer, Spring, Fall, and even Winter! Why does Waterworks Aquatics take water safety so seriously? Because as the following commercial perfectly demonstrates, the #1 cause of childhood deaths are preventable accidents. Drowning is the second-leading cause of accidental death for children ages 1 to 14, behind motor vehicle crashes, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports. That is why we take Water Safety so seriously. We have developed a new level system to quickly progress your children to learn proper swimming techniques by the age of 3 years old!

 

 

Water Safety at Home

Never leave your child unattended around water.

We know water is everywhere. So to make it easy, we divided it into three categories: Water in the home, swimming safety and boating safety.

Here you’ll find everything you need to know about water in the home. Whether you’re bathing your baby in the sink or splashing around with your toddler in the bathtub, water is great fun for kids. But it’s also a place where safety must come first, so here are a few tips for kids who love to get wet.

The Hard Facts

Drowning is the leading cause of injury-related death among children between 1 and 4 years old. And it’s the third leading cause of injury-related death among children 19 and under.

Top Tips

  • Never leave your child unattended around water. We know it sounds strict, but there is no room for compromise on this one. Babies can drown in as little as one inch of water.
  • Put the cell phone away, forget about all the other things you have to do and give young children 100 percent of your attention when they are near or around water.
  • Empty all tubs, buckets, containers and wading pools immediately after use. Store them upside down and out of children’s reach.
  • Keep toilet lids closed and use toilet seat locks to prevent drowning. It’s also a good idea to keep doors to bathrooms and laundry rooms closed.
  • Parents have a million things to do, but learning CPR should be on the top of the list. It will give you tremendous peace of mind – and the more peace of mind you have as a parent, the better.
