Swimming Pool Safety Fences

Searching through the internet daily and thoroughly to link interesting and unfortunately I have been stumbling across recent drownings and near drownings of children through out the country.

Most US residents have been enjoying wonderful warm weather of late. As the heat is setting in, I wanted to post some water safety and drowning prevention tips provided by Citizen CPR.


- Never leave a child alone near the water. Not even for one second!

- Designate a pool lifeguard at all social events.

- Never assume someone else is watching your child at any time.

- Never rely on flotation devices or swimming lessons to protect a child.

Limit Access to Water

- Fences must be a minimum of 4 feet and surround the water on all four sides.

- Enclose the pool or spa with a mesh type material made for this purpose.

- Or use standard fence that has no gaps greater than 4 inches wide.

- Use self latching locks. Locate them above a child's reach.

Multiple Barriers

- Barriers are supplements, not substitutes, to supervision.

- A barrier is only effective if properly installed, maintained and operated.

- Install separate locks at least 5 feet above the floor on all doors leading to the water.

- All doors and windows from the house to the pool should be protected with an alarm.

Additional Water Safety Tips

- Do not leave your child alone in the tub.

- Remove stairs from above ground pools.

- Wear life jackets
