The Memorial Day Weekend is only a few days away. With the unofficial start of summer, it’s time to start thinking about pool safety. Take a few steps to keep your children, pets, friends and family safe around water.
Firstly, if your family owns a pool it is important to make the area safe by putting up a proper fence. If you live in West Chester, or Chester County Pennsylvania check HERE for more Chester County information about pool safety. Secondly, even if you have a fence, children should always be supervised when swimming. And don’t forget your pets! There are flotation and swim safety devices for kids and pets. You can purchase pool safety devices at supply stores, hardware stores, and most local chains. Just remember that a life-jacket is not a substitute for proper supervision around water.
Other information about safe swimming can be found at the CDC website. About ten people die from non-boat related drownings per day in America. But with the use of fences, supervision, proper life-jackets, this number can be reduced. Because of this, it is also important to teach children how to swim, if possible, and to never go near water alone. If a child encounters water – a pool, a lake, a river – they should always get help from an adult.
