Keeping Kids Safe While Poolside

Take Note of These Tips to Minimize the Risks Involved

It’s a great idea to think ahead of the ways to keep cool during the summer, especially when the heat of the Arizona sun raises temperatures into triple digits. The pool is definitely a great way to have fun while keeping yourself cool but it can also be risky, especially for small children. So, how do you keep kids safe at the poolside?

Supervise Children at All Times

This is perhaps the most important measure you can do when kids are poolside. You should give kids full attention, because even the slightest distraction could spell disaster. Leaving kids unsupervised is never advised, as drowning can happen in an instant.

Teach Children basic Safety & Swimming Tips

Enrolling kids in swimming lessons or teaching them yourself is important in keeping them safe, teaching them basics and what to do when they’re in trouble. Take note of what they have the capacity to understand, and lay out the dangers in simple, but serious, terms.

Build a Pool Safety Fence

Fences can look unattractive but they are so valuable in protecting kids. When it comes to Arizona laws on fencing, both below-ground and above-ground pools must be completely enclosed by a wall with no openings through which kids could squeeze in. Fences don’t even have to be unattractive: some fences are actually transparent, giving you a clear view of the pool, all while keeping your kids protected from the dangers of being unsupervised at the poolside.

Have Emergency Safety Items Within Reach

A phone, first aid kit, and floatation devices definitely help in keeping the danger low while at poolside. It’s best to prepare these items before even setting out to the pool in case something goes awry. It’s also important that you know how to use them. Don’t be too complacent!

Sun Protection

Living in Arizona, means protecting yourself and your family from the dangers of prolonged sun exposure.

  • Sunscreen  Be sure to have kids apply sunscreen. The sun will get intense during the summer months. This means that they run the risk of getting sunburned which can be extremely uncomfortable. Sunscreen that is at least SPF 50 is best for protecting kids from the rays of the sun.

When keeping kids supervised, it’s always a good idea to keep yourself close. That could mean exposing yourself to the heat of the Arizona sun for hours on end.

  • Awnings  Perfect for poolside shade, providing comfort against the sun’s heat, have awnings installed. You can get retractable awnings that you can simply roll back whenever you don’t need them. Awnings can definitely give you that much-needed shade.
