Pool Safety Tips
by Pool Safety Systems
(NJ, NY, PA & CT)
Infant drowning has been among the leading killers of children between the ages of birth and 5 years. Sadly, for every child that drowned, several more children were
victims of "near drowning" accidents that left them
disabled for the remainder of their lives.
In almost 70% of the cases, the parents were at home supervising the child when the accident occurred. Frequently they recall that they had seen the child just moments before the accident. Most often the parent or caregiver was very close to the child but rarely report hearing a splash or a cry for help.
The sad truth is that all of these accidents could have been avoided if access to the pool had been restricted by a physical barrier. Why weren't these children prevented access to the pool? In most cases, the families were unaware that Pool Safety Fencing existed!
What can you do to protect your child from pool accidents?
Pool Safety Experts recommend that there be several ayers of protection from the house to the pool that alerts caregivers and prevents toddlers from gaining access to the family swimming pool.
- Close parental supervision

- Swim lessons
- CPR training

- Pool Alarms
Each of the above items are useful, and certainly play their part in swimming pool safety, but, only the Pool Safety Fence is recognized as the most effective tool in keeping the toddler away from the potential source of danger, giving the parents time to react .
Keeping a physical barrier such as a
pool cover and a
pool safety fence between
the home and pool is recommended
by the National Spa and Pool Institute
as being one of the best deterents
to infant related drowning accidents.
As recognition for this product grows, cities and counties around the country are placing into law the need for an effective physical barrier such as a Pool Safety Fence between the residence and the pool.
Where Pool Safety Fences have been employed,
toddler drownings have been reduced substantially.
