Swimming Expert Talks about Winter Water Safety

Watch: 3:33min video about the dangers that winter weather and water can have.

It’s that time of year again: when storms blow in, ponds and marshes freeze over, and children venture out onto the ice.  Create a teachable moment with your swimmer:  frozen water poses much different risks.

Some tips:

  1.  Go outside around ANY body of water with an adult
  2.  Make sure the water is clean
  3. Avoid walking out onto frozen lakes/ponds if unsure about the thickness of the ice
