If you've been outside the past couple of weeks you know how suffocating it's been.

It's been so hot and humid with absolutely no relief inland. It's been nice at the beach, but brutal everywhere else.

When you look at the forecast and see 86 degrees and think finally some relief! That's when you know it's been bad.

Jumping in a pool right about now sounds amazing. We all want to keep cool during these hot summer months in New Jersey, but we all need to be safe.

I read an article recently that talked about the best color bathing suits for you to buy for your kids.

Neon green, hot pink, and bright orange were the colors recommended so you can spot them in a crowded pool, ocean, or waterpark.

Vibrant colors are the way to go, not white or light blue bathing suits because they blend into the water and are harder to spot.

Ways to Keep Safe Around Water

  • "Never leave children swimming unattended. Drowning can occur in an inch or two of water."
  • "Stay within an arm's length of small children in water to protect against rapid drowning."
  • "Warn children to never swim at a pool or beach alone or without a lifeguard."
  • "Train children to swim at an early age."
  • "Teach children that swimming in a pool is far different than swimming in open water." 
  • "Be certain only qualified and undistracted adults are entrusted with supervising children in water."
  • "Empty inflatable pools, buckets, pails and bathtubs after each use."
  • "Personal floatation devices do not guarantee water safety."

Have fun and stay safe this summer!
