Take The Pool Safety Pledge And Keep Kids Safe Around Swimming Pools
18 Jul Take The Pool Safety Pledge And Keep Kids Safe Around Swimming Pools
One minute is all you need to take the pledge to make sure your family is safer around water this year. Adult and child versions are available.
Water safety is at the forefront of every swimming pool owner’s mind, and it should be on the mind of everyone associated with swimming pools. In many cases, concerns about swimming pool safety can preclude someone from buying a pool. The Pool Safely program run by the CPSC has been putting swimming pool safety at the forefront ever since the Virgina Graeme Baker act was put into law. This post is a link to the Pool Safety Pledge for Adults and Kids, which gives people that will be around water a guideline and motivation to take the proper steps to keep kids and adults safe around water.
Here is an excerpt from the post:
I pledge that I will…
Designate a water watcher every single time children in my care are in or near the water.
Make sure my kids know how to swim.
As a parent or guardian, learn CPR.
Always remove portable pool ladders when not in use.
Ensure all permanent pools have a proper fence and gate and safer drain covers.
