  • Never leave a young child unattended near water and do not trust a child’s life to another child; teach children to always ask permission to go near water.
  • Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets around water, but do not rely on life jackets alone.
  • Maintain constant supervision.
  • If you have a pool, secure it with appropriate barriers. Many children who drown in home pools were out of sight for less than five minutes and in the care of one or both parents at the time.
    Avoid distractions when supervising children around water.

  • ​Have appropriate equipment, such as reaching or throwing equipment, a cell phone, life jackets and a first aid kit.
    Know how and when to call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number
