Thinking it can't happen is one reason it does.

It can strike any family. Even yours.

Drowning doesn't care if its victim knew how to swim or came from a loving family. It doesn't discriminate between race, gender or how much money is in the bank. It doesn't even care if other people are watching.

All it needs is a few seconds, and lives are changed forever.

88% occur with supervision present


A child can drown in as little as 20 seconds


23% occur during family gatherings

But you can prevent it.

Drowning is preventable if you and your family are dedicated to being safe while swimming or near water. This is particularly true for pool owners who have  an inherent responsibility to provide a safe environment.

It all starts by reading the water safety guidelines below and always following them.

Each is an important "layer of protection" that when combined together greatly reduce the risk of drowning. Adhere to each one because you won't know which one could save someone's life– until it does. 

The  5 Layers of Protection.


Stay Close, Be Alert and Watch.


WATER WATCHERS.  Always watch your children and never leave them unattended. Designate responsible adults to be "Water Watchers", instructing them take turns with others to avoid fatigue.

Install Physical Barriers.


FENCING. Install "Isolation Fencing" to provide a barrier between your home and your pool or natural water. It restricts unauthorized access from neighbors’ yards, other nearby buildings, as well as from inside the house where small children may be. 

.  Latches should always be out of the reach of young children, so it's recommended to install them at least 54 inches from the ground.

All doors leading to your pool should be equipped with a self-closing, self-latching device with a release mechanism installed no lower than 54 inches above the floor. 

.  It is recommended that covers that meet the ASTM International voluntary standard F1346-91 be used.
