Pool SafetyTips
Updated On: Oct 29, 2012

Pool Safety Tips:

 

The Auburn Firefighters would like to remind everyone that we are coming into pool season and would like to give some tips for Pool Safety:

 

  • Create child safe zones
  • Have a fenced in pool and keep pool gates locked and latched
  • Enter young children into a water familiarization or swim classes
  • Always supervise children around the pool area
  • Have an alarm in pool and spa areas to warn you about someone entering that area
  • Buy and use pool and spa covers (purchase one that can hold an adult)
  • Parents are encouraged to create a home / pool safety checklist and follow it
  • Place tables and chairs well away from the pool fence to prevent children from climbing into the pool area.
  • Keep toys away from the pool area because a young child playing with the toys could accidentally fall in the water.
  • Remove steps to above ground pools when not in use.
  • Don’t consider a floating device a substitute for supervision
  • Learn CPR and pool safety tips allowing with purchasing safety equipment

 


There are on the average 6000 to 7000 deaths annually caused from drowning in the U.S.
Forty percent of all drowning deaths are children under the age of five.
Drowning is the third most common cause of accidental death annually in th U.S.
Most drowning occurs within a few feet of safety, and many occur due to a lack of supervision by responsible adults.

Here are some safety videos:
