We’re smack dab in the middle of summer! And what better way to cool off than to splash into a cold, refreshing pool. But, wait before you do so, it’s important to keep these pool safety tips in mind to keep you and your family safe during these hot summer days.
Pool Safety Tips for Omaha Parents and Students
1.) Never leave a child unattended in or near water.
Keep your eyes peeled whenever children are in or near water. Put down the phone, magazine, newspaper, or whatever else may be keeping your eyes off your swimmer. Even when there is a lifeguard present, it is always a good idea to keep watch at all times.
2.) Teach children how to swim
Teaching children how to swim will enable them to be confident, skilled swimmers. Enroll them in a local swimming lesson program such as Aqua Tots Swim School, DiVentures, or Swimtastic. Attending swimming lessons is not only fun, but is lifesaving skill.
3.) Teach children to stay away from drains
Advise your children to stay away from drains, especially in shallow pools and spas. Doing so, will save your child from getting their hair, limbs, or bathing suit stuck in the drain.
4.) Know how to perform CPR
Attaining your CPR certification is easy and it can save someone’s life. Training is offered by the local American Red Cross or through one of many independent emergency training centers in and around Omaha.
