Focus on pool/water safety
Now that the warmer weather has arrived the Halton Regional Police Service is urging everyone who spends time in and around pools to focus on safety.
Every summer in Halton Region there are a number of serious incidents involving near drownings, and in some tragic instances fatal drownings, in the Region. The majority of the incidents have occurred in privately owned backyard pools.
Although we are only a few weeks into the summer of 2015 there have already been four very close calls in Halton; two in the Town of Milton and two in the City of Burlington. All four incidents involved children under the age of 10. Fortunately in each of the four incidents the outcome was very positive due to immediate CPR being provided to the victims.
The following practical safety tips can help ensure a safe and fun summer for everyone, particularly when young children are swimming in a backyard pool:
- Ensure that young children who can’t swim wear approved flotation devices.
- Ensure an adult who can swim is designated to observe the pool and closely monitor the safety of the children at all times.
- Ensure the pool does not become overcrowded with swimmers and pools toys which may increase the chance of a child in distress going unnoticed.
- If you own a pool ensure your yard is fenced and secured at all times in accordance with local by-laws.
- If you haven’t already done so consider taking a course in CPR.
