Drowning Prevention Tips

Keep Kids Safe:Circle of Drowning Prevention

  • Always maintain adult supervision
  • Never leave children unattended
  • If a child is missing, check the pool first
  • Designate a "Child Watcher" for all social gatherings involving pools or water
  • Don't rely on swim lessons or floatation devices to make your child "water safe"
  • Empty standing water sources - children can drown in as little as 5 inches of water

Use Protective Barriers Around Your Pool

  • Keep all window and doors to the pool area closed and locked
  • Install fencing & self-latching gates around your pool.
  • Install alarms and secondary locking devices at home
