Water safety in hot weather

During the hot weather lots of people are enjoying using pools and areas of water to cool down. However, it's important to remember water safety, especially for babies and young children who should NEVER be left unattended in or near water at any time. It's crucial that parents and carers do not become distracted when their child is in water.

There can be dangers to people of any ageā€¦ remember streams and rivers can be extremely hazardous even for strong swimmers. Alcohol can impair judgement and make people take unnecessary risks. Remember water safety. For more information visit:
