As the water begins to rise this Spring here are a few things to remember regarding water safety:
- Talk to your children about the dangers of being near high/fast water in rivers and dams. Make sure to keep them within arms reach anytime you are near the water.
- Be cautious around river and dam beds. With high water levels, the surface closest to the water can be unstable with crumbling or uneven banks.
- Don’t go into the water after someone who is in trouble. Rescue from shore and get help.
