Summer is here, which means lounging by the pool. With pools and children one big question is always asked, how can you keep your child safe around pools?
First, if you have a pool in your backyard put in a fence that is at least 4 feet tall with a self-closing gate that is out of the child’s reach.
Next, when kids are done playing in the pool, remove the toys from the pool. This will prevent the children from jumping in for the toys without adult supervision.
In addition, never substitute life jackets, water wings, rafts, or tubes as adult supervision.
If you have an above ground pool, remove the ladders when the pool is not being used.
