With the holiday season now upon us, many Arizonans are gearing up for festive gatherings with family and friends. In a state known for its sunny weather and mild winters, a dip in the pool or a backyard barbeque are popular ways to celebrate year-round. However, ensuring pool safety during holiday parties is paramount, especially when hosting indoor-outdoor events. Read on for a few key holiday pool safety tips.
Prioritize Adult Supervision
The excitement of holiday celebrations can be distracting, but it’s always crucial to designate a responsible adult to supervise the pool area. Regardless of whether or not your party will extend into the backyard, be sure to have at least one adult keeping an eye on the pool area to ensure that no kids or pets have wandered in without supervision.
Secure Pool Barriers
Adequate pool fencing is an essential component in ensuring that your backyard is safe for everyone to enjoy. By verifying that your fences and gates are up to safety standards and pool gates are kept securely closed and latched at all times, you can help prevent many common poolside accidents. Pool barriers can help restrict access to certain areas, ensuring that children and pets do not wander into the pool area without supervision. At DCS Pool Barriers, we are proud to offer a number of fencing and gate options depending on your budget and needs in order to help ensure a safe and happy holiday season for your loved ones and guests.
Have Safety Devices Available
If a child does fall into the pool—or if a swimmer of any age begins to struggle in the water—devices such as life rings can be crucial in bringing them to safety. Other essentials may include a first-aid kit and a landline phone for calling 911 in the event of an emergency.
