Chapter 1: Real Life Story
The Protect Your Pool, Protect Your Kids video provides information on both correct pool fencing and common faults so that pool owners can ensure that their pool fencing is safe.
Drowning is a leading cause of death among children under five years of age. • Approximately 70% of all drowning deaths in this age group occur in backyard swimming pools. • A large number of children under five years of age drown in swimming pools because of pool fencing that does not meet NSW pool fencing standards, which is against the law.
Always remember to: • Check your pool fence regularly throughout the year, especially in the months leading up to summer. • Supervise from within arm's reach when children are in and around water. • Learn Infant and Child Cardio-pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). • Familiarise your children with water and teach them to swim, but never assume that they cannot drown.
