Arizona is called the Valley of the Sun for a reason and more often than not, people of all ages choose the pool as the perfect way to enjoy Arizona summers. However on average, nearly ninety people die from drowning in Arizona each year with the majority of those deaths happening between April and August. You can help prevent summer drownings by remembering these top 5 pool safety tips for summer.

  1. Never leave a child alone near water. If you must leave, take your child or children with you.
  2. Enroll children over age three in swimming lessons taught by qualified instructors.
  3. Always use approved personal flotation devices (life jackets).
  4. All gate locks and latches should be checked regularly to insure they are working properly and adhere to Arizona residential pool codes and standards. Also, a gate should never be left propped open.
  5. All residential pool owners should attend water rescue and CPR/CCR classes. Otherwise CPR/CCR instructions and the 911 emergency number (or local emergency number) should be posted in the pool area.

Water play is fun, but water safety is serious business and should be a high priority this summer. Remembering these top 5 pool safety tips for the summer can keep your outdoor activities fun, and your friends and family safe for many summers to come.
