After a flood, assume that all water sources are contaminated until proven safe.
Do not use water that has a dark color, has a smell, is cloudy, or contains floating material.
There will be a public announcement over radio or television to boil the water. This is known as a "boil order."

A new playground equipment report (pdf) was just issued by CPSC and it found that from 2009 to 2014, 19 of the 34 fatal playground incidents that we investigated were the result of hanging or asphyxiation. During that same time period, nearly 1.5 million injuries associated with playground equipment were treated nationally in emergency departments. Annually, that breaks down to about 243,000 ER treated injuries.
If you believe your child's playground is not safe, report your concerns to the appropriate owner, park district or school. Kids just want to have fun and they should. CPSC wants to make sure they do it safely.
