If you have a pool, be prepared! Make sure everyone can swim and create some safeguards. Children should have swimming lessons, which can start as young as age 1.
Always watch children when they are near or in water no matter what their swimming skills are.
Young children should wear floaties, which can be arm floaties or inserts in swimming suits.
Install door chimes or alarms and pool fencing is best with secure gates and doors. The alarms can be for walls and fencing around the pool, wristbands for personal immersion detectors, and wave sensors.
