Water Safety

With so many pool parties and backyard BBQ’s happening this weekend, it’s important to watch your kids carefully around water. Follow these simple steps to have a safe and fun holiday weekend:

  • Watch Your Kids At All Times – Don’t assume that someone near the pool or at the party is watching the kids for you. You must be responsible not only for your own kids, but for every child at that party. If you’re hosting the party, it’s your responsibility to have someone on watch at all times.
  • Do Not OverIndulge With Alcohol – If you are at a pool party with the family and kids, it’s best not to over-indulge with alcohol and to be acutely aware of everything that is happening in and around the pool.
  • Maintain Control – Just as there would be rules at any community pool, there needs to be a strict set of guidelines at your pool party. There should be no running around the pool, no rough housing underwater and no diving in the shallow end.
  • Have Safety Gear Available – You should have floatation devices for the younger children such as life jackets, padded swimsuits or water wings. You should also have a  pool safety line to let the younger swimmers know where the deep end begins.
  • Fencing – You must have a fence around your pool!

Wishing you a happy and safe Memorial Day weekend!
