May is National Water Safety Month and as pool season kicks into full swing, families in Oklahoma and across the country are taking safety precautions to keep their children safe around swimming pools and even hot tubs. This topic is very timely and important because most drownings occur when the child was thought to be in the house and nowhere near the pool area. This is why a safety pool fence is so very important, to prevent drownings.
Drowning is the #1 cause of death in children under the age of 5 in the United States.
69% of pool related accidents occur while one or both parents are supervising their child, and 77% of children who drown were seen 5 minutes or less before being missed and subsequently discovered in the pool. Life Saver Pool Fence of Oklahoma represents the number one pool fence company in the world and is trying to change these alarming stats!
Life Saver can provide the essential “Layers of Protection”: what parents, grandparents, and guardians can do to keep these preventable accidents from happening. Our safety expert, Marty Holland, can come in-studio and showcase the best drowning prevention methods.
Join us in our pledge to practice pool safety this month and all season long!
