Enjoying the water is a great way to stay cool and have fun.  And since we are surrounded by lakes and pools, it is important for adults and children to stay safe.

Don’t overestimate your swimming skills.  Make sure you swim in designated swimming places and don’t swim alone.  For our children, always keep your eye on them near pools, lake, and beaches.  It only takes seconds for children to wander and they have a natural curiosity for water.
