Patrol. Protect. PREPARE.

July is the hottest month of the year and what better way to cool down and have some fun than playing in water?  Whether it’s along the Colorado River, the shores of Lake Mead, or your own backyard pool, you must always be prepared for a water emergency.  Preparing for such an emergency is one of the three P’s (patrol, protect and prepare) of being a water watcher.  Here are some ways that you can prepare yourself:

  • Enroll children in swim lessons taught by qualified instructors
  • Learn CPR, rescue techniques and how to call 9-1-1
  • CPR skills save lives and prevent brain damage

Taking swim lessons in the summer is great, but it’s also important to maintain those skills by taking year-round lessons. CPR classes are also strongly encouraged, but you can also take a refresher on proper technique by following these steps.

Enjoy the summer and remember to always be a water watcher!
