Each year nationwide, about 300 children under age five drown in swimming pools. In Florida, drowning is the leading cause of death for this age. It only takes seconds for an unattended child to get into trouble in the backyard pool, canal or pond. Take a moment now to be prepared.
Parents need to talk to their child about water safety. Here are some ideas to start with:
Install access doors to pools, spas and all water environments.
Install alarms on access doors.
Install pool safety barrier (four-sided) separating pool and/or backyard lake from home and all access doors and entrances.
Install floating pool alarm.
Learn CPR and rescue techniques.
