We’ve discussed pool safety tips in the recent past, but they certainly bear repeating ahead of a long weekend that will find people across California heading out onto the water. A new report finds various officials in Orange County (Florida) detailing some vital steps to take to ensure safety. First, make sure that kids are supervised around bodies of water at all times. Explain to children that horseplay and going underwater to see who can hold their breath the longest are unacceptable activities. You or someone in your group should have an understanding of CPR, and a cellphone should be on hand so that you can call for help should an emergency arise. If you have a pool or jacuzzi, make sure to cover them when not in use and lock doors that lead to the unit. Should a child go missing, check the water at once.
