Parents know their little ones can get into virtually anything in an instant. Traditional drowning prevention strategies, while important, overlook one of the most formidable defenses: your child. At ISR of Lake Lanier, children who are mobile enough to reach the water alone are taught to save themselves should they reach the water alone. Generally speaking, children who can crawl and sit unassisted can learn to rollover onto their backs, breathe and rest until help arrives. Similarly, children who are walking learn the full ISR Self-Rescue™ swim-float-swim sequence.
The focus of ISR Self-Rescue™ lessons is survival. Why? Across our nation and in 18 of our states, drowning is the number one cause of death for children under the age of four years old. This statistic is alarming, but the good news is...drowning is preventable. ISR Self-Rescue™ recommends building layers of protection between your child and the water. These layers are essential because the reality is that most children do not drown because of LACK of supervision, it is a LAPSE in supervision, and it only takes a momentary distraction for a curious toddler to get out of your sight. ISR Self-Rescue™ students are the best aquatic problem solvers in the world!
