This is when a pool fence comes in handy because it can secure the pool area and make it only accessible when opened by an adult. The pool gate should always be liked when not in use.
– Teach all adult supervisors infant and child cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Also provide life saving equipment near the pool area for easy accessibility.
– Always teach children to swim. It’s a valuable lifesaving skill. They should know how to float, kick and hand stroke. Breathing techniques and breath holding should be mastered as well. Children can start swimming lessons as early as 6 months.
