Swimming is the most popular summer activity. Staying safe around water is more than staying near the lifeguard at the pool. Every year many children drown in residential swimming pools, bath tubs, buckets of water and other containers of water. Anywhere there is water there is risk for drowning. Do not leave a young child unattended near any source of water, not even for a moment.  For more information go to www.redcross.org

  1. At first I thought it was an actual AED for 200, and I was ready to get one in my home! But it looks like it's just the training, but for CPR and AED is still a pretty good deal.
