Homeowners should be familiar with a number of safety tips to ensure swimming pool safety. They include:
• Fence it in A four-sided, isolation pool fence with self-closing and self-latching gates should be installed around the pool. The fence should be at least four feet tall and completely separate the pool from the house and play area of the yard.
• Phone A telephone should be available near the pool, and homeowners should know how to contact local emergency medical services. The emergency number (911) should be posted in an easy-to-see place.
• CPR All pool owners should know CPR.
• Safety equipment Pool owners should keep a long pole and life preserver rings handy for emergencies.
