Prevent Holiday Drowning Spending time in and by the pool is a 4th of July tradition for many families. Unfortunately, the popularity of this activity coincides with an increase in drowning reports during this time of the year.
PoolSafety.gov was created to educate homeowners and families about the risks of drowning and to provide important safety tips to prevent these tragedies from occurring.
Tips include the obvious -- staying close to children and being alert -- to the less-so, like learning water safety skills and using a door or pool alarm if the house serves as the "fourth side" of a fence around the pool.
Be sure to check out the PoolSafety.gov website for all the safety advice and have a safe 4th of July!
