Portable Pools Pose Drowning Risk for Young Kids
Date:6/20/2011

s promotes a pool-safety concept called "Lock, Look and Learn":

  • LOCK: Erect fencing at least 4 feet high with a self-latching gate and keep it locked at all times unless an adult is present.
  • LOOK: Parents and caregivers should watch children in or near the water at all times, and not socialize, read or sleep.
  • LEARN: "Adults should learn to swim themselves and provide swimming lessons to their children from an early age," Appy said. They should also know how to respond to an emergency -- "use rescue equipment, call 911 and perform CPR," she added.
