Pool Safety: Children, Teens, and Adults
Thursday, June 16, 2016

Summer is here and that means one thing for a lot of Cincinnati families: spending time at the pool!

Swimming is a great way to stay fit and have fun, but of course there is a lot of responsibility that goes with being around a swimming pool. No one wants a day of fun to end in a drowning tragedy. Remember these important water safety rules whenever you’re near a pool of water—even small, kiddie pools.

  • Whenever possible, choose pools that staff trained lifeguards. Make sure children are in the appropriate areas of the pool, according to their swimming abilities.


  • Never let anyone in your household swim alone. Always insist that they swim with a buddy.


  • Children should NEVER be left unattended near any pool of water—even very small pools. Make sure the person watching your child or children is an adult who can swim well and won’t be overly distracted by others around them or electronic devises.


  • Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets around water, but do not rely on life jackets alone.


  • Make sure everyone in your family learns to swim well. Enroll in age-appropriate Red Cross water orientation and swimming lessons.


  • If you have a pool on your property, make sure it is secured behind childproof barriers. Many children who drown in home pools were out of sight for less than five minutes and in the care of one or both parents at the time.


  • Put down your phone! Be sure to avoid distractions when supervising children around water.


  • If you suddenly notice that a child is missing, check the water first. Seconds count in preventing death or disability.


  • Don’t forget to protect your skin. Always use sunscreen when you’ll be in the sun for more than 30 minutes, and when you’re not in the water, cover any exposed skin.


  • Avoid dehydration. Drink plenty of water regularly, even if you’re not thirsty.
If you have any questions about keeping everyone in your family safe in and around pools this summer, just give us a call or stop in anytime.
