As we get closer to summer, more families will be near the water. Experts say it's important to keep safety a priority, whether you're on vacation or at home.

Experts say it's the time of the year to make sure your children know how to swim and how to approach situations, whether you are at the beach or at a pool.

Drowning can happen at any time of year, but be especially cautious during the summer months when drowning incidents can increase up to 89 percent as compared to the rest of the year.
