Labor Day Swimming Pool Safety Review

Real Estate Agent with Professional Realty Services® International #01704162

Sadly a Sacramento 9 year old girl was electrocuted in her family pool a few weeks ago. Missed the story? Read the story HERE, it is truly heartbreaking.

As you enjoy this last weekend of the summer swim season, here are some steps to make sure your pool is safe:

Inspect your pool frequently during swim season.
Check that the light is secure, the GFCI is working properly, and there are no frayed wires around the equipment. Field mice love the insulation around the wires.  

Many pool companies have inspectors that will come do a comprehensive pool inspection. It is a good idea to have this done every few years.  

Should you have a pool emergency, here are the steps the American Red Cross suggests:

  1. Turn off power at the pool
  2. Call 911
  3. Use a fiberglass Shepherd’s crook/rescue hook, to extend your reach to the victim
  4. Brace yourself on the pool deck
  5. Extend the Shepherd’s crook/rescue hook toward the victim
  6. If the victim cannot grasp the Shepherd’s crook/rescue hook, use the loop to encircle the
  7. victim’s body and pull him or her, face-up, to the edge
  8. Carefully remove the victim from the water;
  9. Position the victim on his or her back;
  10. Tilt the victim’s head and lift the chin to open the airway
  11. Check the victim for breathing and, if the victim isn’t breathing, give two rescue breaths;
  12. Check the victim for signs of circulation (normal breathing, coughing, or movement in response to rescue breaths) and
  13. If there are no signs of circulation, begin CPR;
  14. If there are signs of circulation, begin rescue


Wishing everyone a happy and safe Labor Day.
