Swim safely while having fun!


Summertime is just around the corner. Parents and children alike are excited about opening day at the local pools or even in their own backyards.

Swimming pools can be fun but can pose just as many safety concerns. Safe Guilford wants to make sure you and your family are ready for summer fun at the pool by sharing safety tips from the CPSC.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has launched Pool Safely: Simple Steps to Save Lives campaign to encourage safety around pools. Visit www.poolsafely.gov/parents-families/ for a list of Simple Steps Save Lives with information on water safety steps to keep your family safe around pools and spas. There is also information for residential pool & spa owners.

Parents and caregivers can find even more information on the Safe Kids USA website by visiting the following link: http://www.safekids.org/safety-basics/safety-guide/water-safety-guide/.

No matter where your favorite swimming pool is located, remember to use the water safety steps and keep everyone safe and happy this summer!
