Summer Safety Tips – Sun and Water Safety
Keep your family safe this summer by following
these tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
FUN in the SUN
Babies under 6 months:
two main recommendations from the AAP to prevent sunburn are to
avoid sun exposure, and to dress infants in lightweight long
pants, long-sleeved shirts, and brimmed hats that shade the neck
to prevent sunburn. However, when adequate clothing and shade
are not available, parents can apply a minimal amount of
sunscreen with at least 15 SPF (sun protection factor) to small
areas, such as the infant’s face and the back of the hands. If
an infant gets sunburn, apply cool compresses to the affected
For All Other Children
first, and best, line of defense against harmful ultraviolet
radiation (UVR) exposure is covering up. Wear a hat with a
three-inch brim or a bill facing forward, sunglasses (look for
sunglasses that provide 97-100% protection against both UVA and
UVB rays), and cotton clothing with a tight weave.
in the shade whenever possible, and limit sun exposure during
the peak intensity hours – between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
both sunny and cloudy days use a sunscreen with an SPF 15 or
greater that protects against UVA and UVB rays.
sure to apply enough sunscreen – about one once per sitting for
a young adult.
sunscreen every two hours, or after swimming or sweating.
extra caution near water and sand (and even snow!) as they
reflect UV rays and many result in sunburn more quickly.
Heat Stress in Exercising Children
intensity of activities that last 15 minutes or more should be
reduced whenever the heat and humidity reach critical levels.
the beginning of a strenuous exercise program or after traveling
to a warmer climate, the intensity and duration of exercise
should be limited initially and then gradually increased during
a period of 7 to 14 days to acclimatize to the heat,
particularly if it is very humid.
prolonged physical activity, children should be well-hydrated
and should not feel thirsty. For the first hour of exercise,
water alone can be used. Kids should have water or a sports
drink always available and drink every 20 minutes while
exercising in the heat.
should be light-colored and lightweight and limited to one layer
of absorbent material to facilitate evaporation of sweat.
Sweat-saturated shirts should be replaced by dry clothing.
and games played in the heat should be shortened and more
frequent water/hydration breaks should be instituted. Children
should seek cooler environments if they feel dizzy, lightheaded

preferable one who knows how to swim and perform CPR – should be
within arm’s length, providing “touch supervision.”
a fence at least 4 feet high around all four sides of the pool.
The fence should not have openings or protrusions that a young
child could use to get over, under or through.
sure pool gates open from the pool, and self-close and
self-latch at a height children cant reach. Consider alarms on
the gate to alert you when someone opens the gate.
the house serves as the fourth side of a fence surrounding a

pool, install an alarm on the exit door to the yard and the
pool. For additional protection, install window guards on
windows facing the pool. Drowning victims have also used pet
doors to gain access to pools. Keep all your barriers and alarms
in good repair with fresh batteries.
rescue equipment (a shepherd’s hook – a long pole with a hook on
the end – and life preserver) and a portable telephone near the
pool. Choose a shepherds hook and other rescue equipment made of
fiberglass or other materials that do not conduct electricity.
inflatable swimming aids such as “floaties.” They are not
substitute approved life vests and can give children and parents
a false sense of security.
ages 1 to 4 may be a lower risk of drowning if they had some
formal swimming instruction. However, there is no evidence that
swimming lessons or water survival skills courses can prevent
drowning in babies younger than 1 year of age.
decision to enroll a 1- to 4- year old child in swimming lessons
should be made by the parent based on the child’s development
readiness, but swim programs should never be seen as “drown
proofing” a child of any age.
entrapment: Suction from pool and spa drains can trap a swimmer
underwater. Do not use a pool or spa if there are broken or
missing drain covers. Ask your pool operator if your pool or
spa’s drains are compliant with the Pool and Spa Safety Act. If
you have a swimming pool or spa, ask your pool service
representative to update your drains and other suction fitting
with anti-entrapment drain covers and other devices or systems.
inflatable, above-ground pools have become increasingly popular
for backyard use. Children may fall in if they lean against the
soft side of an inflatable pool. Although such pools are often
exempt from local pool fencing requirements, it is essential
that they be surrounded by an appropriate fence just as a
permanent pool would be so that children cannot gain

sure the life jacket is the right size for your child. The
jacket should not be loose. It should always be worn as
instructed with all straps belted.
water wings, toys, rafts and air mattresses should not be used
as life jackets or personal floatation devices. Adults should
