Stop Drowning Now!

Summer is right around the corner.  In Houston, this means, heat, air conditioning, shorts, and large bodies of water.  Unfortunately, those pools, lakes, rivers, and oceans come with the high risk of drowning.  This Tuesday, May 29, at 7 PM, national organization, Stop Drowning Now, will be here to talk about the dangers of children and the water.  Learn what you can do to keep your child safer this summer as we all use water to cool off from the heat of the season.
