Swimming Pool Safety

As the weather warms, we will start to use swimming pools and enjoy the recreation they provide.

Please do your part to make the summer swimming season a safe one, for your family.

Drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional injury / death in the home.

Many of the drowning deaths are related to swimming pools.

Basic safety around the pool is critical to avoid injuries or death.

• Swim with a partner or observer, so if you encounter a medical situation someone can call for help

• Always practice constant “touch supervision” around any body of water.

• “Touch supervision” means that you are close enough to your child, grandchild or great grandchild to reach out and touch him or her.

• Older children should not be left in charge of younger children around water.

• Teach children that pool fittings, drains and grates are not toys and they should never stick their fingers or toes in them.

• Inflatable toys and rafts can deflate. Non-swimmers should not use them in water over their heads.

Safety Precautions:

• If you own a pool, install four-sided fencing to surround the pool and a self-latching, locking gate, pool alarm or a secured pool cover.

• Learn CPR and have a water-resistant cordless telephone or cell phone, to keep by the pool.

• If your children, grandchildren or great grandchildren visit you or friends, who have a swimming pool or spa, be sure they are watched by an adult and know the safety rules of pool use.

• Learn and practice basic lifesaving techniques, including First Aid and CPR.

• Insist that anyone who cares for your child, grandchild or great grandchildren learn CPR.
