Looks like we’re going to have another toasty week, with temperatures ranging from the low-100’s to 110 plus! Phew! A lot of us may find some relief by jumping into a cool pool or maybe one of our state’s fabulous lakes. But before you take that refreshing plunge, you may want to take a quick refresher on the A,B,C’s of water safety…..particularly if there are kids near the water.
Did you know our state ranked fourth in the nation last year for the most child deaths due to drowning? Below are a list of links to stories on water safety including several with safety tips. Take a few minutes to read them over and then let us know what you think Generating dialogue around the health stories making headlines is another way we are working toward our long-term goal of one day making Arizona the Healthiest State in the Nation!
