Be a Water Watcher. NEVER leave children unattended, NOT EVEN FOR A SECOND!
WATER WATCHER. While wearing this tag, I agree to supervise the children in the open water or pool, KEEPING THEM IN SIGHT AT ALL TIMES. I will not leave the water area without finding an adult to replace me.

When children are swimming and there are several adults present, make sure kids are actively supervised at all times by choosing a Water Watcher. A Water Watcher is a responsible adult who agrees to watch the kids in the water without distractions and wear a Water Watcher card. After a certain amount of time (such as 15 minutes), the Water Watcher card is passed to another adult, who is responsible for the active supervision.

To learn how to get your water watchers card, call (661) 321-3000 or come by the Kern County Public Health Department's location at 1800 Mount Vernon Ave, Bakersfield, CA 93306 to pick one up.
