A Safer Swim: Be Prepared

From Pools, Spas, Patios

One of the most overlooked aspects of owning a swimming pool is the necessity for a safe environment.  Most homeowners spend lots of money to outfit their outdoor living space without considering the proper training and equipment necessary for a safe swimming experience.  This post from Pools Spas & Patios suggests that all pool owners should be trained in first aid, CPR, and water safety.

Courses in this subject typically combine swimming skill instruction and water safety knowledge, which can save lives.
