As we continue to enjoy the warm weather that goes hand-in-hand with summer months, it is inevitable that we will find ourselves at a pool. Pools are a great way to engage with friends, entertain your children, and soak up the sun. However, they can also be a danger zone.
Some simple ways you can avoid havoc include:
Never leave a child unattended in or near water.
Install proper barriers, covers and alarms on and around your pool.
Make sure pool covers are working properly.
Secure, lock, or remove the latter when the pool is not in use.
When you take these proper precautions, most of pool-related accidents are preventable. It is important to know the risks that come along with pool-related activities, but also to take the actions to make it the safest environment for you and your loved ones. As always, enjoy the nice weather, and stay safe!
