Learn how to stay safe in the pool
Here are several safety tips for pool owners
With summer fast approaching, we thought we'd take the opportunity to talk about pool safety.

If you own a pool, be sure to install a fence or barrier around the pool that is at least four feet tall. Take note that steps and ladders to above ground pools are secured, and that children are always supervised.

These tips and more can be found in the linked article below.
