Georgia summers are HOT, and a trip to the lake or pool is a great way to keep cool this time of year.  Water safety is on all of our minds, especially as we play in the water with our little ones.  There were 129 child drowning deaths in Georgia between 2009 and 2012.  That’s an average of 32 deaths a year.  We want to make that number zero.

Please take a moment to review these safety precautions from the SPLASH campaign by the State of Georgia Children’s Cabinet, a part of the Governor’s Office for Children and Families.
