Three life-saving water safety tips for you this summer

Fun summer events often includes water activities.  Roanoke Electric Co-op desires for both its staff and member-owners to enjoy the summer fun as safely as possible.  To that end, here are three water recreation safety tips that could save a life this summer:

  • Never leave children unsupervised in or near a pool.
  • Wear life jackets when engaging in boating activities.
  • When a pool is not in use, ensure it has self-closing or self-locking gates.

“Safety is a huge part of our culture,” said Becky Alston, coordinator of safety and loss control for the co-op.  “Employees practice and work safe every day at work, and we take that same mindset home to our families too.  We want to share those same principles with our member-owners and their families.”
