Creating Awareness on Pool Safety in Your Neighborhood
December 13, 2016
As summer approaches, families brace themselves for the swim season. In May, the swim season officially kicks in. It is time for most people to sit back and enjoy the water with their friends and family. However, during this season the most numbers of drowning incidents are reported. It is important therefore that we take it upon ourselves as a community to create awareness on pool safety Texas North. You can utilize the thousands of pool safety professionals available countrywide to create this awareness by:
Mobilizing people to practice pool safety
Adults, children and young people can all participate in campaigns aimed to sensitize the community on pool safety issues and encourage them to take action to protect their pools and make them child-friendly so as to reduce the changes of drowning. Peer education among pool owners can also help to reduce these accidents.
Identifying pool safety risks
Pool service professionals can lend their extensive knowledge on pools and how they work to the community and help them be aware of safety risks that they may have and not know. They can do this by carrying out inspections and involving the community members and pool owners in this so that they know what to do when faced with the same issues later.
Working to solve the issues identified
Once the pool safety issues you are facing have been brought to light, the professionals can help you come up with actionable steps to solve these problems. For instance, if your gate latch wasn’t working or the hinges had come undone or if your pool cover was not properly anchored you may need to get that done. You can even decide to use one pool in the neighborhood so the mums can be able to watch their kids better together as they enjoy the swim season.
When it comes to the safety of the children and preventing drowning, a community effort will bear a lot of fruit in ensuring pool safety Texas North. Children are a great community asset and working together to safeguard them is essential. Swimming is fun and if we are going to hear of horrible drowning incidents every other day, it makes us feel worried and troubled. Perhaps, we need to ask ourselves, what role are we playing to stop this? Are we taking the pool safety measures seriously or we just think that drowning happens to some families or people and not others?
