Pool safety is so vitally important and whilst improvements have been made in physical pool safety, education and prevention and dramatic improvements in those trained in CPR and resuscitation,  very sadly drowning’s continue to plague our summers destroying families and taking young lives before their time.

We encourage you to be proactive in preventing this tragedy occurring in your family by researching and doing all you can now.

The following sites and resources have been gathered and will continue to be supplemented and added to as we continue on our quest to ensure the safety of children.
