On today's show, Adrian and Ethan talk about water safety and keeping our kids safe.

Warm weather is quickly approaching and we’re all eager to enjoy a little fun in the sun. So, it’s only fitting that May is National Water Safety Month.

National Water Safety Month is an annual awareness campaign coordinated by the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance with support from the American Red Cross, National Recreation and Park Association and World Waterpark Association.

Children love to play in and around water, but no matter where you find it – in a bucket, bowl, toilet, tub, sink, puddle, or pool – water is dangerous. Although you've probably heard this more than once, it's worth repeating: A child can drown in less than two inches of water.

Approximately 830 children ages 14 and under drown every year. Submersion takes less that 10 seconds. Losing consciousness takes 2 minutes. Permanent brain damage takes only 4-6 minutes.
