This month we are focusing our content and podcasts on Water Safety. We have partnered up with Kim Shults, the founder of “Face in Water” and we are chatting about popular misconceptions with Water Safety. As an Aquatic Specialist, Kim offers a unique perspective and some REALLY helpful tips about where you can start to keep your kids safe and reflecting on our relationship with water.

We would also like to throw a little love to our podcast series sponsor, Home Pool Essentials. Home Pool Essentials was jointly developed by the American Red Cross and the National Swimming Pool Foundation. This course teaches home pool owners the basics of pool and hot tub maintenance along with strategies for creating a safer environment. Take a peek here.
