Summertime is filled with outdoor play, swimming, barbecues, and family time. Here are a few tips to make sure your children stay safe during the summertime fun:

  1. Even in cool weather, children should never be left in the car.
  2. Pools should always be surrounded by a fence at least 4 feet high with a self-closing, self-latching gate.
  3. Young children should always be within arm’s reach while in the water.
  4. Inflatable swimming devices are not life jackets. Supervision is still necessary.
  5. Use sunscreen and reapply every 2 hours and after swimming.
