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 learn to save themselves should they find themselves alone in the water. Generally speaking, children who can crawl and sit unassisted can learn to roll over onto their backs, breathe and rest until help arrives. Once they have learned to walk, children can learn the ISR Self-Rescue® swim-float-swim sequence.
The focus of ISR Self-Rescue® lessons is survival. Why? Across our nation and in 18 states, drowning is the number one cause of death for children under four. This statistic is alarming, but the good news is drowning is preventable. ISR 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 a lack of but 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!
