The swim bag is covered and the sunscreen is applied. The sun is shining and the pool is ready to be filled with eager little swimmers. While the basics are covered with toys, sunscreen and snacks for later, the utmost importance should be directed towards the safety of your children before making a splash.

According to the CDC, drowning is a leading cause of death for children between the ages of 1-4 years old. It also accounts as the fifth (5th) leading cause for death of all ages. Additionally, for toddlers (ages 1-4), swimming pools are the single greatest risk to hurt or kill a child.

“For every child less than 15 years old who dies from drowning in a pool, another 10 receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries. Nonfatal drowning can cause brain damage that may result in long-term disabilities including memory problems, learning disabilities, and permanent loss of basic functions. The good news is that drowning can be prevented.”

The tragedies are irreversible when a child is permanently damaged or fatally lost. It is a nightmare no one should ever endure, especially when there are steps to prevent this danger. Before even thinking of the numerous toys your children may want to trek along to the pool, be sure to first speak with them about pool safety. Be candid with them and set parameters on what is acceptable behavior in the pool and not. Most importantly, make sure your children have attended swimming lessons and are strong, confident swimmers before letting them free in the water. If your children are still learning how to swim, it is extremely important to use floating devices such as lifejackets or other floatation devices to keep them safe.

Above all, as a parent or guardian of your children or any other child at the pool, be diligent in making sure that everyone is safe. If you see a child who is struggling, do not be hesitant to step in. The swimming pool should remain a happy, safe and fun environment this summer—make sure it is one for your children!
