How to keep kids safe in your Swimming pool?

Grandparents and parents should employ the following measures to keep children safe around swimming pools:

Erect a removable pool fence

Putting up a fence around your swimming pool is the safest way of keeping your children safe. Removable fences perform best because they can be put up and brought down whenever you need to. The fences are tall and climbing proof, this helps it to keep children on the other side when you are not around to provide guidance. For additional security, always ensure that the gate to the swimming pool is tightly locked.

Include first-aid rescue equipment and close by

Accidents do occur at the time you expect it the least. You should have emergency rescue equipment and emergency first aid equipment and safety kits like floaters, rescue tubes, and life hooks by the poolside. Most children that survive the unpleasant ordeal are left with irreversible health effects like severe brain injury due to late intervention. You need to be well conversant on how to administer first aid services to the child that is saved in time.

Introduce an Alarm system

Children are quite unpredictable. You should be ready for any surprises that may arise when your child is playing in the backyard. Install alarms that notify you whenever the gates to your swimming pool are opened. Your alarm system should be able to notify you of any movement that occurs inside your swimming pool. Test your alarm setup once in a while to ensure that it is operational. The city of Los Angeles encourages the use of alarms to secure your pool.

Set up some swimming pool rules

Imagine our society existing without rules and regulations. Your kids should be introduced to rules and regulations at a tender age. Draft a list of rules that one needs to adhere to while around the swimming pool. The golden rules should include a decree of not being allowed to swim in the absence of an adult. Additionally, no child should be allowed to run around the pool deck. Adherence to rules reduces the occurrence of poolside accidents.

Use of Pool Covers

Pool covers are built to keep children, adults, and pets safe from accidental drowning. The covers help in preventing alien elements that might cause injuries and complications to your children from entering your swimming pool. In swimming sessions, you should completely remove the pool cover to reduce the chances of accidents.

Promote safety awareness of your children

Your kids need to be well aware of the need to stay safe in and around the swimming pool. Help the children to understand that they should care for one another at all times. Equip your kids with the relevant first aid skills that may come in handy in the event of an emergency. By understanding the role of your removable pool fence, the children are less likely to make attempts of going over the fence at the wrong time.

Dispense swimming lessons

learning to swimMany swimming deaths occur because of the unpreparedness of the victim. You should help your children build some mad swimming skills. Help your child build confidence and survival skills required in the water. You should personally administer the swimming lessons. Alternatively, you may sign up your kid for swimming lessons.

The Los Angeles Pool Safety Code

Due to an increase in the deaths of kids at the hands of drowning, the state introduced new laws to improve safety. The Health and Safety Code 115920 recommends that each pool should have an isolation perimeter fence. The ladders and pool fence gates should be fixed above the reach of kids and pets. The facilities are expected to have a pool cover, removable pool fence, or both.

According to the Health and Safety Code 115923, all removable pool fences in Los Angeles stand erect at a minimum height of two inches. The gaps in your removable fence should not go beyond a diameter of four inches. The local building authority approves Premier Pool Fence lines from Guardian Pool Fence Systems.
