I am re-posting this blog as I feel this subject is a very important topic and we cannot be reminded to often to take all precautions when dealing with kids and swimming pools. There are many swimming classes given in the Las Vegas Valley – let’s keep all children safe.
Its summer in Las Vegas and we all know what that means – hot weather and relaxing in the swimming pool to escape the heat and still be outdoors. However water safety is a must do especially if you have children.
That is why I am giving out Water Watcher Cards to adults that agree to be responsible and supervise the kids in the water without distraction. If there are several adults around the Water Watcher Card is passed to another responsible adult that will also supervise the kids and keep them safe in the water.
First of all when you have a backyard pool you should install fences around the pool. The fence should surround all sides of the pool and be at least four feet tall. The opening gate to the pool should be self-closing and self-latching gates. The Health District in Las Vegas also advises putting an alarm on the gate.
It might be wise to take a class in what to do in an emergency – learn CPR and water rescue skills – this can help in saving a life. If you have children you might want to enroll them in swimming classes.
This advice is not only for your backyard pool. Be a Water Watcher when your family goes to a water park or community pool. Keep your eyes on your children – there are usually life guards on duty however they cannot watch everyone all the time.
If you have toddlers in the home make sure all bathtubs are empty of water – did you know a baby can drown in an inch of water? Also get into the habit of putting all toilet seats down so curious toddlers do not get into them.
Water safety also means dealing with monsoon rains and if you are taking out a boat on Lake Mead – those topics are for another blog.
Become a Water Watcher and contact me for a card, and take care of what is most precious in the world – children.
