Emergency Steps Your Child Should Know

Basic Water Safety

School-age kids should learn basic water-safety skills (particularly important if you have a backyard pool). Teach your child how to assist someone who needs help in the water without putting himself in danger (reach out with a kickboard or a towel, or toss a flotation device into the pool); how to open someone's airway; and for older children, how to give resuscitating breaths.
