DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - Emergency workers says it's never too early to teach children how to swim.

Parents should also learn basic swimming safety so they can protect their kids.

Obviously you should watch your children. You can't be there 24 hours a day. Know CPR and first aid. It's very important.

Emergency responders say you should also have floatation devices handy anytime kids are around water.
