I’m writing to say thank you. I’m own an above ground pool owner that liked to think I paid very close attention to swimming pool safety. But what was I really doing to keep my kids safe in or near the pool? Was I actually prepared to handle a pool-related incident?
Your June Facebook post about how to accurately spot a drowning swimmer made me realize I wasn’t doing enough, and that no, I wasn’t fully prepared. Seeing that article spurred me on to reading a wide-variety of pool safety resources, including the articles in your Pool Library. It really is amazing how many drowning accidents occur every summer and how many of them could be prevented by putting safety plans and guidelines in place.
I thank you for continuing to put that information out there in a variety of forms, serving to consistently remind people like me to stay alert and get better prepared. I hope you all have a wonderfully safe summer!
