Tips to Stay Safe

Home Swimming Pool Safety

Summer Swimming in your backyard pool or your friend’s backyard pool offers lots of fun especially for kids. Water safety for home pools is crucial.  Consider that 70% of all drownings are  happen when kids are not swimming. Kids wander into neighbors’ yards and fall into an unfenced in pool. Or they hop into a kiddie pool that has not been emptied from previous use or from rainwater.

TIPS FOR WATER SAFETY AROUND HOME POOLS

  • Assign a designated Water Watcher.  Assuming that there are many adults watching the pool in effect makes no one responsible. Assigning a job as water watcher to a specific adult with a schedule of when the water watcher is relieved and by who is very effective. Water watcher tags are actually available for free online that makes clear who is watching.
