5 Important Keys To Water Safety

  • Effective Supervision

    The most critical line of defense is adult supervision. No level of aquatic skill can replace active supervision. If your child is ever missing, look in the water first.

  • Pool Fences

    Install a permanent 4-sided fence with self-locking gates. Ensure that the pool fence is at least 3-5 feet from the pool edge.

  • Alarms

    Make sure all doors and windows leading to the pool are locked and alarmed.

  • Survival Swimming Lessons

    A moment's inattention does not have to cost a child his life. ISR's Self-Rescue® training is an added layer of protection, teaching your child water survival skills in a completely safe environment.

  • CPR

    If an emergency happens, it is essential parents and families are prepared. Learn to perform CPR on children and adults and remember to update those skills regularly.
