Swimming Pool Accidents Major Cause of Death to Small Children

Do you or your neighbors have a pool? We are saddened by the news of a four year old drowning yesterday. Our heart goes out to the child’s family. Florida ranks number one in deaths due to drowning for children under the age of five. The Florida abuse hotline has reported 19 have drowned since January. Jacksonville is surrounded by rivers, ponds, pools and the ocean. Children are fast, creative, adventurous and curious the combination sets the stage for family fun but can quickly turn dangerous. Help protect children from potential accidents with proper supervision, child-proof barriers, swimming lessons and emergency training. Learn CPR and teach your child to dial 911. Below we have a link to pool safety and Red Cross CPR classes. http://www.redcross.org/courses/index.jsp?_requestid=2151534http://www.myflfamilies.com/service-programs/child-welfare/water-safety-tips
