As we head into the summer months it’s important to remember water safety.
20 seconds is all it takes for a toddler to drown.
For children that survive drowning incidents many are hospitalised and can be left with permanent disabilities.
Always be in arm’s reach and never take your eyes off children around water.
DON’T DRINK AND DROWN
Summer and the holiday season is a great reason to enjoy water activities with friends.
Water safety is important so remember a few things:
Stay alert to the dangers around water
Don’t participate in risky behaviour
Remember alcohol and drugs don’t mix with water activities
Enjoy the water but most importantly look out for each other.
