An unprotected pool is more dangerous to your child than a loaded gun*. And so the safety of your pool area cannot be an afterthought. If you wouldn’t buy a car without a seatbelt, you shouldn’t have a pool without a fence. It’s your responsibility to keep your family safe from your home’s greatest danger.
A normally conscientious mother at a pool party thinks “someone else is watching”, no one sees or hears her child fall into the pool. A normally attentive father switches his attention to a flare-up on the BBQ grill his while his child sinks without a sound to the bottom of the swimming pool. A loving grandparent is attending the needs of one of her grandchildren, the other wanders off to an unsecured hot tub.
Supervision is vital, but it's near impossible to supervise young children every minute the day. That is why parents and caregivers should provide multiple layers of protection - pool fencing, self-closing self-locking gates, pool alarms, safety covers, in addition to constant supervision.
For many years infant drowning has been among
the leading killers of children between the ages
of birth and 5 years. Sadly, for every child that
drowned, several more children were "near
drowning" cases destined to be disabled for the
remainder of their lives.
In almost 70% of the cases, the parents were at
home supervising the child when the accident
occurred. Frequently they recall that they had
seen the child just moments before the accident.
Most often the parent or caregiver was very close
to the child but rarely report hearing a splash or a
cry for help.
Pool Safety Experts recommend that there be
layers of protection from the house to the pool
that alerts caregivers and prevents toddlers from
gaining access to the family swimming pool.
