May is national Water Safety Month. Water safety is a growing topic among pool professionals and government officials. With recent accidents and government regulations it is the perfect time to focus on how to have fun and be safe around your pool or spa.
A few ways to help your family be water conscious is to teach children the basic of water safety early. Tell them the rules and what to do when around water and make sure they are in the presence of an adult at all times. Have an emergency plan in place if something were to ever happen and always have access to a phone to call for help. Also make sure your pool is up to date with all local and national safety regulations including pool alarms. This simple step could be the difference in life and death.
These are just a few ways to insure water safety around your home. For more information please visit National Water Safety Month at www.nationalwatersafetymonth.com.
