I’m putting these three together. They seem common sense, but then again. I’ll discuss fire further on in more detail.

Task Nine

Mild: Drowning Prevention Checklist

Always monitor young children when bathing.

Insure your dishwasher and washing machine are off when done.

Never leave water running when you’re not watching it. This is not only for injuries but for home damage (speaking from experience).

Don’t use electronics around water, especially the bath.

Keep toilet lids closed.

Pools should be completely enclosed with at least a four-foot high fence and childproof gate.

Never allow children in a pool unsupervised.
