Kids at beach wearing towels like superhero capes.

Play it SUPERHERO safe around water.

Summertime at Lake Tahoe ramps up the fun! Consider these reminders when kids are looking to make a splash:

Watch them like a hawk.
Pay close attention when kids are in or near water.

Take precautions near the lake & pools.
Remember, it takes only minutes for kids to wander away into danger.

Issue life jackets. 
These are especially important for the lake, but consider having young or inexperienced swimmers use them in swimming pools too.

Always know where they’re going. 
Remind kiddos to ask before going near water.
Knowing where to go in a health emergency will help you get the best treatment possible. For urgent medical care in the South Lake Tahoe and Stateline regions:

Urgent Care offers some of the same services as the Emergency Room, such as X-rays and blood testing. However, Urgent Care does not treat life-threatening conditions. If you need treatment right away for a less serious issue, an urgent care center may be your best bet.

Some less severe problems appropriate for Urgent Care services, include:
  • Sinus or ear infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Minor cuts and burns
  • Sprains and broken bones
  • Fever and sore throat
