Swimming Pools can be fun and safe


Swimming pools can be great fun for everyone especially during the hot summer months however, safety precautions must be followed at all times.  It is important for people with backyard pools to realize how easy it is for children to wander into a yard or through a back door to a pool.  Unfortunately, it only takes seconds for a child to drown.  Children should never be left unattended around water even for a few seconds. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in Arizona for children under age 5.
