Prevent Child Drowning Accidents With Pool Safety

 

Implementing pool safety steps for your children can prevent tragic drowning accidents that happen every year to even the most diligent families.

 

Pool safety for your family begins with the basic steps of always being alert to your children around pools or water.  Some basic pool safety tips:

 

*Watching your children like a hawk is the most important pool safety rule.

 

*Teaching your children to swim and basic pool safety is the next that and your families water safety program.


*Get children in swimming classes as early as possible.  Teach them the basics of not to run around the pool and to avoid diving off the sides.

 

*Make sure your pool is inspected to avoid potential entrapments from drains and pipes, and this should include hot tubs as well.

 

*Learn CPR and be prepared to teach your children CPR when they are older.

 

Make sure you have appropriate safety equipment for your pool or hot tub.  This list would include:

 

*At least a 4-foot or taller fence around the pool with self-closing and self-latching gates.

 

*Install locks on the gates to the pool and door or window alarms for any opening that may be used to gain access to the pool.

 

*If you have a hot tub keep a cover over it and ensure young children cannot move the cover.

 

*Consider a surface or underwater alarm, which can be purchased for as little as twenty-five dollars.

 

Always have more than one safety device protecting your children from accidental drowning in your swimming pool.  Safety redundancy is very important in protecting your family from a tragedy.
