7 Pool Safety Tips That Can Save Lives

Each year, hundreds of children drown in residential and public pools and spas. Taking extra safety steps around the water can mean the difference between a close call and a call to 911. Stay Close, Be Alert and Watch.

  • Always watch children; never leave them unattended.

  • Before you swim, locate nearby life-saving equipment such as life rings or reaching poles.

  • Don’t rely on “water wings,” or other inflatables, to keep your child safe.

  • Keep children away from pool drains, pipes and other openings.

  • Share safety instructions with family, friends and neighbors.

  • Learn to swim and teach your children how to swim.

  • Have a phone close by, at all times.
