Water Safety

ABCs of Water Safety

  • Active adult supervision

 Make sure to have adults watch children in and around water with no distractions 

  • Barriers

A fence should surround the pool that is at least 6ft tall and have a self-closing, self-latching gate.

  • Classes

Classes for parents/guardians in first aid and CPR and swim lessons for children are highly recommended.


All it takes is less than 2 inches of water for a child to drown. Never leave standing water around your home.
