9 ways to make your pool safer for kids

Make your home pool a safer place

Safeguard your children from the dangers of a home pool.

With the summer sun comes swimsuits and watery fun, but parents should be on high alert, especially if their homes have pools. Drowning ranks as the second leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 19, even for those who have learned to swim or had swim lessons, so relying parent supervision is no longer enough to prevent drowning. Consider taking these steps to prevent your family from enduring a tragedy this summer.
