Pool Safety Checklist

Pool Safety Checklist

Easter is just around the corner. I can't wait to see everyone for our yearly get together. I hope this year we will be able to use the pool it is ready and waiting. Here is a handy checklist to make sure everyone has fun and stays safe:

  1. Teach children how to swim as soon as they are old enough. When your baby is 6 months old, you can join a parent-child swimming class to familiarize them with water and can enroll in actual swimming lessons around age 3 or 4.
  2. Stay within arms reach at all times around children who are not pool safe.
  3. Designate someone to actively watch when children are in the pool. Limit things that may distract you when you're on duty, such as your cell phone, socializing, and drinking.
  4. Ensure you have proper fencing around your pool. Use at least a four-foot tall fence and self-closing gates.
  5. Place a safety cover on your pool or hot tub when not in use and remove any ladders or steps used for access.
  6. Use the buddy system. No one should swim alone.
  7. Establish and enforce rules and safe behaviors around the pool, such as "no diving" and "walk, don't run."
  8. Make sure everyone wears swim-level appropriate safety items, such as a life jacket or floaties.
  9. Keep children away from pool drains, pipes, and other openings to avoid entrapment.
  10. Take a CPR class to be prepared in case of emergency.

Hi Pat- when we lived in South Florida, it was always so sad to hear of the number of drownings that occurred, especially during the summer months.

Hi Pat,

I watch the Phoenix News every night, and there are so many that drown in our state starting right at the beginning of January.  It is a shame.  I have owned or been in a community with pools for 50 years.

Number 3 is critical, and we usually designate 20-minute intervals so that concentration can be key.
