Swimming pools at home should be made secure to avoid unwanted accidents. Here are some ways on how to do this:
Children should never left unattended in or around the pool. Even older kids and grown ups too should never swim alone, or at least tell someone that you are in the pool.
Invest in having a barrier around the pool so that children and animals won’t fall into it accidentally.
It is best if someone in the household knows how to perform CPR. Make sure that you have the telephone numbers of emergency personnel in case of emergency. Have a first aid kit available in the home too.
Create rules for everyone to follow such as not engaging in rowdy activities, and no diving into shallow water.
Never swim when there is a storm. Anyone inside the pool should get out and get inside for safety.
