Tucson By Choice!: February 2008

Pool Safety for Infants and Toddlers: Infant Swimming Resource

Some time ago, I attended a funeral for a 5 year old who drowned while visiting family in Manahawkin, NJ.  It was one of the most difficult things I've ever experienced, and the tragedy is that it didn't have to happen.  Look at this amazing video of 11 month old Miles, and you may want to rethink the closing gift you'll give to your next client who buys a house with a pool. 

 

The infant you just saw, little Miles, was trained by an ISR certified instructor.  He's now four years old.  Click here to see the rest of his story.

If you're relocating to Tucson, and for neighbors and friends who already live here, there are 12 locations with trained ISR instructors in greater Tucson. 

To locate the closest ISR instructor in your own geographical area, CLICK HERE and enter your zip code.

Safety, especially the safety of our youngest and most vulnerable, is something that we in the real estate and lending community can actively foster through our awareness of programs like Infant Swimming Resource.

And that's the real estate opinion of this Tucson, Arizona mortgage lender,
