• Use only Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices (PFD’s) Anything that can be inflated with air is not  adequate

  • Make sure life vests fit properly

  • Always wear life vests when boating and when fishing or playing near rivers, lakes and the ocean.  Simply having them in the boat is not sufficient

  • Have a list of pool rules and make sure that everyone know them

  • Make sure that caregivers and others know about the layers of protection
