With temps heating up, you may have your sights set on the swimming pool.  It won’t be long before your kids will be begging to cool off and splash around.

But before they do, there’s an important warning from safety experts, as our state is third in the nation in the number of drownings.

Whether at the lake or the neighborhood pool,  Fun in the water too often turns deadly in our state.

“Drowing is the second leading cause of death for children 2 to 14 in Oklahoma,” said Katie Mueller, director of Safe Kids Oklahoma.

That’s why water safety education is essential.
