Six Important Tips For Preventing Swimming Pool Drownings

Every year, thousands of people die in home swimming pool drownings.  Fatal unintentional drowning is among the leading causes of death among children of the ages one through fourteen. Most drownings are preventable.  

Here are six tips that will help prevent drownings:

 

  1. Teach your kids how to swim as soon as possible – the younger the better.

  2. Add another layer of protection around your pool. Install safe and strong pool safety fencing.

  3. Never leave kids unattended. If your children are in the pool or even around it, resist the urge to go answer the doorbell or your phone.

  4. Teach your kids the Buddy System: If there is a group of kids, designate pairs, and explain how each kid is responsible to watch their buddy.

  5. Designate an adult water watcher who is entirely dedicated to monitoring the children when they are in or near the pool.

  6. Last, but not least, make sure the adult watching the children is CPR certified. This is very important, as having someone who knows CPR can save lives and prevent brain damage if an accident happens.
