Falls and Water Safety

Preventing Falls
Falls are the most common cause of injury visits to the emergency room for young children. Falls cause more open wounds, fractures, and brain injuries than any other cause.
Water Safety and Teens
Encourage your adolescent to take swimming, diving, and water safety or rescue classes to give him/her the skills needed to swim and dive safely.
Water Safety--Identifying High-Risk Situations
Water hazards in and around the home include buckets, diaper pails, toilets, ponds, and fountains.
Water Safety--Prevention
If your children are around bodies of water on a regular basis, learn CPR. CPR can save lives, reduce the severity of injury, and improve the chance of survival.
