Learn water safety for kids on Web
The Suncoast Safe Kids Coalition and All Children's Hospital have created a Web site to promote pool safety. The site, floridasafe pools.com, can help parents and caregivers research water safety and learn about "layers of protection" to keep little ones out of harm's way. Florida leads the nation in drowning deaths of children younger than 5, the Web site says. In many cases the caregiver was distracted for only a minute. Barriers such as door alarms, locks, gates and fencing can buy precious time. Floridasafe pools.com is also offering a chance to win a pool safety makeover. Click on the site to learn more.
