As you prepare for the hot summer months, filled with fun and long days in the sun, IUSD would like to take this opportunity to share important water safety reminders. IUSD and the City of Irvine have partnered with the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) on a water safety campaign for Irvine. According to OCFA, Irvine has the second highest drowning rate in Orange County.
Below are links to helpful handouts from OCFA in five languages, which can be printed and placed on your refrigerator or somewhere visible for the whole family. Also, please share this information with caregivers.
ABCs of Water Safety
Water Safety Rules
Another helpful resource is OCFA’s drowning prevention webpage, which includes tips and videos. http://www.ocfa.org/SafetyPrograms/DrowningPrevention.aspx
Thank you and have a fun and safe summer!
