Arizona Swimming Safety Tips for Kids

By Breyer Law Offices on September 19, 2014

Arizona Child InjuryHot weather is persisting in Arizona and that means more pool parties—that’s why it’s important to pay attention to swimming safety tips. Parents just like you will be navigating the shift from having kids in school full time to having kids in the pool full time, and there’s nothing wrong with doing a little reconnaissance to make sure you remember how to keep your children safe, how to keep your mind at ease, and what to do when things don’t go exactly as planned. And if you’re going to be out swimming a lot, here are some of the best things you can do to keep your family safe.

  • Know the temperature of the water you and your children are swimming in. No matter what time of year it is, there are some bodies of water, even swimming pools, that remain relatively cool, and in the mountains, very cold. Swimming in cold water can be difficult, especially when fatigued, and this can lead to a dangerous situation.
  • Swim where there are lifeguards whenever possible. When you’re out in the wilderness, there are no lifeguards and life preservers to help you stop a bad situation from turning into a drowning accident. Do the majority of your swimming at public pools, or private pools, where safety devices and trained personnel might be at the ready.
  • Make rules for your family when it comes to the water, and stick to the rules. You can, and should, set rules for just about everything when it comes to your kids and the water. Tell them when they can play in the water, for how long they can play in the water, and who must be present for them to go near or get in the water. Kids going to the pool or out to a lake in a group of friends should never be a suitable group. As a parent you must remember that just because your children are in a group, doesn’t mean that the group can stop a disaster.

National Water Safety Month is all about reminding you to be prepared for the fun, and the possible trouble, that warmer weather and pool time can bring to your family and your life. Remember to keep an eye out and keep safety top of mind.
