We’ve all heard them: there is certainly no shortage of pool-related horror stories.

Pool Safety for Kids & Families

 

  • Never, even for a split second, leave young children unattended in or around a pool. Keep a phone by the pool for emergency calls and also for answering (many drownings have occurred while the person supervising ran into the house to pick up a ringing phone.)
  • The pool fence should completely separate the pool from the house and play area. It should also self-close and self-latch, with latches higher than the children's reach.
  • Do not let your child use or rely on air-filled toys and "swimming aids" such as “floaties.”
  • Anyone watching young children around a pool should learn CPR and be able to rescue a child if needed.
  • Toys should always be removed from the pool after use so that young children are not tempted to reach for them.
  • Children should be trained in water survival from the time they are able to walk or crawl to the pool. That said, do not consider a child “drown-proof” just because he or she can swim or has had swimming lessons.
  • If a child is missing, the pool should always be checked first, as each second counts when it comes to preventing drowning.
  • Don’t leave the pool fence open or proper open at any time, even for a second or two
