Summer is almost here! 

For a lot of people, summer means water activities! Whether it's the pool, the reservoir, the beach, or the lake, water activities and water safety go hand in hand. Sadly, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children under 5.

May is National Water Safety Month, and SafeSplash Swim Schools would like to give you some water safety tools you can practice with your kids to keep everyone safer this summer.

If you are in water too deep to stand up in with your head above the water, you can go under, push off the bottom and come up to get a breath and call for help. You can also practice bobbing up and down to get to the edge of the pool, lake, etc.

Rollovers allow you to take a breath and call for help. The back float allows you to keep your head above water until help arrives.

Practicing safety skills in a real-life scenario could help in an actual emergency.

Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and an essential tool to help prevent drowning. Research shows that the risk of drowning is reduced by 88% if children participate in formal swimming lessons between 1 and 4 years old. (Source: National Library of Medicine)
