Houston swim season is upon us and there are many ways to keep kids safe near the pool. Here are some quick, yet important swimming pool safety tips to ensure your children’s safety in and around your Houston swimming pool.
- Teach your children pool safety basics like treading water and floating.
- Be in the water at all times if your child cannot swim by his/her self. Never rely on floaties or inflated arm bands to provide safety.
- Pay complete attention to your child and take away all distractions.
- Designate an adult supervisor for the kids in the pool. Never assume your spouse or friend is watching the children more closely than you are.
- Keep the pool clear of all toys when they aren’t in use. This can prevent a child from possibly falling in the pool while trying to retrieve a toy.
- Enforce safety rules when at a public pool and teach the kids to obey all rules and regulations before going in the pool.
- Never leave a child in the pool unattended. If you need to leave the swimming area, your child comes out of the pool.
- Make sure you have all the proper safety devices for your home pool, including life preservers and a pool safety fences. Make sure they are in good working condition and are up to safety standards.
