Tips for Keeping Your Family Safe

Untitled 4

Drowning remains the leading cause of accidental death among infants and young children aged 1 to 4, as reported by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It’s a sobering statistic that underscores the importance of prioritizing water safety within our families, a mission at the heart of everything we do at ISR.

Effective Supervision

The most crucial element in safeguarding against water-related accidents is effective adult supervision. No amount of aquatic proficiency can replace the vigilant watchfulness of a responsible adult. If a child is unaccounted for, always check the water first.

Survival Swimming Lessons

ISR’s Self-Rescue training offers an additional layer of defense against aquatic mishaps. By equipping children with water survival skills in a controlled environment, ISR provides peace of mind to families, knowing their children have the tools to navigate potential dangers safely.

CPR

Preparedness is key in emergencies. It’s essential for parents and families to learn CPR techniques for both children and adults and to refresh and update these life-saving skills regularly.

Alarms

Install alarms on all doors and windows leading to the pool area. These serve as a crucial alert system, adding an extra protection barrier and providing early warning in case of unauthorized access to the pool.

Pool Fences

A 4-sided fence with self-locking gates is a non-negotiable safety feature for any household with a pool. Ensuring that the fence is positioned at least 3-5 feet from the pool’s edge further enhances safety measures, creating a physical barrier that limits unsupervised access to the water. Incorporating ISR skills into your family’s water safety strategy not only empowers your children with essential survival skills but also provides you with invaluable peace of mind. By taking proactive steps and implementing these safety measures, we can work together to prevent water-related tragedies and keep our loved ones safe around water. Contact me for more information about lessons.
