Swimming And Pool Safety
Today I'm going to tell you about swimming safety.
Many kids each year are drowned,hospitalized,and killed by not knowing pool safety. That's why for this blog post I'm going to tell you about pool safety.
1-When a in-ground pool in in access for little kids you should always have a pool fence.A pool fence should be at least 4-5 feet tall,just tall enough for kids under 7.
2-You should have alarms in and around the pool,so when a child try's to sneak out of the door to the pool or in the pool you'll know in an instant.
3-You should always watch your children while they're swimming.Ignore phone calls,texts,and E-mails until the children are done swimming.Another smart thing to do is have the kids pair up with a buddy.This is called "the buddy system".
4-If you don't have a pool fence or children sensors you should have a pool cover strong enough to hold a medium sized child,like me.
5-The most important thing to do at a public pool is always watch your child.Public pools are quite dangerous.If your child is seen on conscious in or out of the pool and there is no life guard on duty you should perform CPR.
That's my report on Pool Safety.The End.
