Everybody in the pool! Safely

father-son-in-pool
Play it safe at the pool. Practice “touch supervision,” keeping children within arm’s length.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), an average of 390 drowning deaths occur annually among children age 15 and younger, and emergency rooms treat 5,200 pool and spa submersion injuries involving children in that age group.

Don’t let your family become a statistic; follow all safety precautions in and around the pool.

Pool Safety at Your Home

Enclose the pool –

  • use a fence 4 feet high or higher as required by local regulations
  • install self-closing and self-latching gates
  • position latches out of the reach of young children
  • keep all doors and windows leading to the pool area secure
  • place tables and chairs away from the pool fence
  • remove steps to above-ground pools when not in use

Keep a phone with emergency numbers listed near the pool, or program the numbers directly into the phone. Do not leave children unattended when you answer the telephone.

Practice “touch supervision” with children under 5 years old. Stay within an arm’s length of the child at all times. CPSC statistics show that 54 percent of pool-related fatalities in children under 5 years old from 2007-2009 (the most recent years analyzed) were the result of a lapse in adult supervision.

Do not swim during rain storms, thunder or lightning. Keep rescue equipment, such as a shepherd’s hook or life preserver, close at hand. Learn CPR.
