Falls and Water Safety

  1. Falls: Prevention

    Make sure playground equipment is age-appropriate. Most equipment manufactured today is made for two age groups: children from 2 to 5 years old, and children from 5 to 12 years old.

  2. Water Safety and Teens

    Encourage your adolescent to take swimming, diving, and water safety or rescue classes to give him/her the skills needed to swim and dive safely.

  3. Water Safety--Identifying High-Risk Situations

    Water hazards in and around the home include buckets, diaper pails, toilets, ponds, and fountains.

  4. Water Safety--Prevention

    If your children are around bodies of water on a regular basis, learn CPR. CPR can save lives, reduce the severity of injury, and improve the chance of survival.
