Meet Wes, Our Mascot

Swimming is a lot of fun!  Responsible pool ownership includes an obligation to ensure the safety of your bathers, especially your children and friends!

Watch

Always make sure there is an adult watching children around water!

  • NEVER leave children unattended or allow them to swim alone or unsupervised
  • Assign a designated “Water Watcher” during get-togethers and parties
  • Keep a headcount of all children you’re watching, if a child is missing always check the pool first
  • Know what signs to look for in a child drowning

Educate

Take proper steps to educate your family!

  • NEVER leave children unattended or allow them to swim alone or unsupervised
  • Assign a designated “Water Watcher” during get-togethers and parties
  • Keep a headcount of all children you’re watching, if a child is missing always check the pool first
  • Know what signs to look for in a child drowning

Shield

Putting multiple layers of protection to help keep your pool safe is ideal; just in case one fails you have a backup

  • Keep a throwline, telescopic pole, and a shepherd’s hook accessible in the pool area
  • Put a phone poolside
  • Make sure pool drain covers are VGB compliant
  • Safety net/covers
  • Childproof fencing
  • Pool Alarms
  • Self-latching gates / doors
