No matter the weather, children are drawn to water.
To protect them from drowning, homeowners are urged to install multiple layers of protection between home and pool such as a pool fence with self-closing, self-latching gates, and door alarms that sound when opened from the inside.
Secure all doors, gates and pet doors that lead to the pool area. Teach children to swim. Keep toys and objects away from the pool and spa areas. Secure spas with childproof covers. And keep a phone by the pool to call 911 in case of an emergency. And . . . watch children around water. . . every second.
