Watching children when they are swimming is the best way to prevent a drowning. A person who is drowning is unable to call for help. Which makes it obvious that if you are not watching children while they are swimming, you will not know that they are in difficulty, and may be drowning.Because there are sometimes misunderstandings on who is supervising children while they swim we have developed a “SWIMMING MONITOR” ID tag. Print it out, add a lanyard or tie it on a loop of string and the designated swimming monitor wears it around their neck. The person who is “ON DUTY” should do nothing other than watch the children while they are in the water.The tag should be passed to another responsible adult after half an hour to make sure that there is no lapse of concentration from the person who is “ON DUTY”.The Swimming monitor tag has emergency numbers printed on the front, and on the reverse side are infographics on how to do #BystanderCPR.To download click here <1f449.png> http://ow.ly/uWWl50COSWQ#savinglives #drowningprevention #nsri
