Tips for Staying Safe in the Swimming Pool
We’ve put together a list of tips for keeping everyone safe in and around the pool. You’ll want to come up with a basic list of your own pool rules, too, and make sure everyone knows about them.
Keep Kids Safe
Attend to Pets
Even if your dog can swim, it doesn’t mean he can get out of the pool! Teach your pet how to reach the steps so he can get out of the pool. Again, consider a fence around your pool or an alarm system.
Install a Fence
Set Rules & Keep Them
Make sure everyone knows your pool rule and be consistent. Here are a few to get you started: No one swims alone. No running. No diving in shallow end. No glass bottles. No pushing in the pool. Don’t swim after drinking alcohol or taking medications that might affect your judgement. Always keep first aid supplies and rescue devices near the pool.
