Pool Barrier of Oklahoma

How can you help prevent pool drowning? 

Here are some safety tips: 

* Make sure an adult or designated "Water Watcher" is supervising whenever children are swimming, playing, or bathing in water. The adult must remember not
to engage in any distracting activities such as reading, talking on the telephone, or using the bathroom while attending to the children. If an adult must leave, 
they should not do so until they have someone else to watch the water in their place. Unfortunately, 1 out of 10 children have drowned while under adult supervision. 

* Never swim alone or in unsupervised places. Teach children to always swim with a buddy.
