7 Layers of Protection to Prevent Accidental Pool Drownings

Swimming pools pose a serious danger for younger children, elderly, and pets if there are not appropriate pool safety measures in place. Life Saver Pool Fence of Louisiana recommends that parents implement the following 7 layers of protection to help protect children from accidental pool drowning:

  1. Install pool alarms and door locks on any doors leading to the backyard
  2. Have a mesh safety fence installed that surrounds your entire pool
  3. Provide your children with early infant swim instruction
  4. Supervise children at all times and always have designated a water watcher on “duty”
  5. Make the pool the first place you check if children are missing
  6. Require that any and all caretakers know how to perform CPR
  7. Educate family members, caretakers, and babysitters on pool safety

Remember, not only is drowning silent, but it is the #1 accidental killer of children aged 1-4. Call (985) 397-1785 to request your FREE pool fence estimate today!
