Walk, don’t run. The number one pool safety rule is to never, ever run near a swimming pool. Slipping on wet concrete is a real concern and serious injuries can result.
No diving in the shallow end. Only dive in designated areas, and never dive into an above-ground pool. Diving injuries can have a lifetime of consequences.
No roughhousing. Drowning accidents can occur during rough play in the pool, especially with young children. No jumping on each other in the pool, or holding anyone underwater.
Don’t play around drains and covers. Even when properly equipped, pool drains and covers can be hazardous. Never play near drains or suctions. Entrapments occur when someone or something becomes stuck to these drains or suctions and pose a serious danger to young children who are too small to break away.
Never swim alone. No one should swim alone and children should absolutely never be left unsupervised in a pool, even if they are proven accomplished swimmers. Drowning accidents are vastly more likely to occur when the victim is alone or unsupervised.
Sun safety is part of the deal. Always wear sunscreen when swimming outdoors and wear appropriate clothing poolside. This is especially important for kids.
Out of the pool and inside when storms threaten. Lightning can strike suddenly, even in the absence of rain or with blue sky visible. Take cover when a storm approaches and remain out of the water until at least 30 minutes after the last lightning is sighted or thunder heard.
Parents and caregivers should know basics of CPR and first aid. Always have a phone available. Children should be taught to notify an adult immediately if anyone is having difficulty in the water.
