4 Basic Principles for Pool and Water SafetyWritten by Kathy Alexander
Never leave a young child unattended for even a second. Toddlers are naturally curious explorers and a second is all it takes for them to find trouble that may end in tragedy. According to Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) 75% of submersion victims were between 1 and 3 years old. Never assume another adult is watching your children, you must take full responsibility of their safety, particularly around water. When your child goes missing, always check water first. At social activities, designate an adult as ‘official water watcher’ to help keep all children in attendance safe from harm.
Obstacles must be put in place to keep toddlers safe around pools and water. Little ones learn new skills daily! One day they may only be able to sit, when next day they are crawling and able to get into trouble quickly. It takes less than time spent answering telephone for a toddler to get through an unlocked door, get to pool, and drown. . It is imperative that a mesh type fence completely surrounds pool with a minimum height of 48 inches. This pool safety fence should separate your home from pool and gates should remain locked when not in use. Take care not to provide climbable objects near fence that would allow an adventurous toddler to climb into dangerous pool area alone.
