Pool Safety – ISR teaches infants to swim

Anyone who lives in Arizona knows that pool safety is a hot button – one of those topics you hear about all summer long. Heck, we've written about it 3 times this summer alone! (Extra Pool Safety; Pool Barrier Regulations in Arizona; City of Glendale Supports Drowning Awareness with Purple Ribbons). 99% of what's usually written or reported about this topic focuses on the same information – "Be aware of your kids around water." and "Have a good pool barrier."

Well, maybe it's time to try something different. Maybe the best defense is a good offense. I saw a video today that blew me away! I had never heard of the Infant Swimming Resource before, but you can bet I'm going to learn more about it, and probably become one of their biggest supporters.






Give this a couple of minutes of your time; you'll be glad you did.
