While thousands of North Texans enjoy the summer weather by heading to area lakes or neighborhood swimming pools, there are some safety precautions to keep in mind before taking a dip.

Whether planning a beach vacation this summer or staying closer to home at the neighborhood pool, be mindful of water safety and how to keep the kids safe.
