The most critical line of defense is adult supervision. No level of aquatic skill can replace active supervision. Put phones away while at the pool. If your child is ever missing, look in the water first.
Survival Swim Lessons
A moment’s inattention does not have to cost a child his life. ISR’s Self-Rescue training is an added layer of protection, teaching your child water survival skills in a safe environment.
Make sure all doors and windows leading to the pool are locked and alarmed. Alarms should indicate that someone is in the pool area or has opened/closed a door or gate, or is trying to climb the fence.
If an emergency happens, it is essential parents and families are prepared. Learn to perform CPR on children and adults and remember to update those skills regularly.
Install a permanent 4-sided fence with self-locking gates. Ensure that the pool fence is at least 3-5 feet from the pool edge. Remove patio furniture that may be pushed or pulled and used as a ladder.
