Water Safety Outdoors

Kids need constant supervision around water — whether the water is in a bathtub, a wading pool, an ornamental fish pond, a swimming pool, a spa, the beach, or a lake. 

  • Always stay within an arm’s reach of your child when he or she is in or near water
  • Ensure that pool gates and fences are secure and in working order
  • Gates should be self-closing and self-latching, and the latch should be out of kids' reach
