More Information

  • Do not allow your child in a pool where there is not trained supervision. If you are supervising a child, you should NOT be on your cell phone.

    If your child is at a home with a pool, talk to the parents about how they supervise children near the pool and find out what kind of gate system they have.

    If you have a pool, install a lockable fence.

    Establish pool safety rules for everyone.

    There should be proper rescue equipment at any pool. Become familiar with how to use it.

    Children should wear appropriate safety vests while in and around the water.
