Is Your Swimming Pool Safe?

Home swimming pools offer years of fun and activity for families. They can also be a significant threat to young children; those living in the home or in the surrounding neighborhood. The vast majority of children who drown in home pools were not expected to be in or around the pool.* Most children who drown in home pools do so by entering the water without their parent’s or caregiver’s knowledge.

May is National Water Safety Month. Regularly visit to learn the options available to secure your swimming pool and help prevent tragedy, and enjoy your swimming pool for years to come.

  1. Keeping your pool safe should be a top priority if you have children. I have a safety fence, pool alarm, and removable stairs at my pool. I also provide constant supervision. There is nothing more important than my children's safety.
