The warm climate in Arizona and the ultra-hot summers in the state have to lead many to install swimming pools at their homes or become members at local pools to keep cool in the heat. Because the weather is so warm year-round, there is a lot of people swimming which lends to increase the risk of drowning. Children, in particular, are at high risk for drowning accidents and in Arizona, the rate of child drownings is almost double that of the national average.
Caregivers and parents must never let their children swim unattended. When there is a pool in the home, there are specific proactive safety measures that should be taken to keep your children safe. If you have little ones in the home who enjoy a good splash, you can’t blame them. Consider these tips to prevent drowning accidents from happening to your children.
