Follow these safety tips from the American Red Cross to help prevent accidental drowning. Never leave children unattended near water. A child can fall into a pool and drown in just a matter of minutes. Always keep basic life-saving equipment nearby. Among these items should be U.S. Coast Guard-approved flotation devices (life jackets and ring buoys) and a reaching pole. Some families install pool alarms, which add extra protection. Put a fence at least 4 ft. high around the pool area with a
self-closing, self-latching gate that is locked when the pool is not in use. You and any caregivers should be trained in CPR. Teach your children to swim at an early age.
