According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), “every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning.  Of these, two are children aged 14 or younger”. Additionally, the CDC reports that there were 3,443 fatal unintentional drownings in 2007. These tragedies occur most often as a result of lack of supervision or proper precautions – the installation and consistent use of a pool gate.

Swimming is supposed to be a fun, carefree, part of growing up in Southern Nevada. So what can parents do to make sure swimming remains a memorable childhood pastime?  The CDC found that, “participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children ages 1 to 4 years old”. Their research suggests:

(1) swimming lessons,

(2) supervision when in or around the water, and

(3) use of the buddy system.

    • Thank you for the link back! We are always trying to offer relevant information to our readers. We get tons of “industry news”, some of the content is great however we filter 90% of the fluff pieces. In addition, some of blogging is based on field experience from Red Square Pools in Las Vegas, NV USA from actual customer experiences. I’m glad to here there is a way to monetize ideas we blog about, however we’ve tried to steer clear of pitching/selling product on the blog to keep the content pure. I’m always keeping our eyes peeled for value added partners in business, especially if we can support our interests in scuba! Unfortunately I have not had the pleasure of diving in Belize…yet ;).
