ABC's of Pool Safety
Remember these pool safety tips
A: Adult supervision is the first step. Whenever children have access to water, choose a Water Watcher. The Water Watcher maintains eye-to-eye contact with children when they have access to water.
B: Barriers, like swimming pool fences, are critical to keeping children safe. Most drownings occur when children are not expected to be near the pool. Drownings can even occur in neighbors' pools or in the middle of the night when parents are asleep.
Putting a fence around a pool is like putting your child in a seatbelt when they travel in a car – both can save lives.
C: Classes, like CPR and swimming lessons for children at the appropriate age, can help prepare in case of an emergency. CPR can make the difference between life and death. Keep your CPR skills sharp by taking classes at least every two years.
