Vol. 1, No. 1
As the summer months approach, it’s time to start thinking about outdoor activities and summer fun. One important consideration is pool safety for you and your family. For millions of Americans, swimming pools are ideal places to spend time together and have fun. Pool Safely is a project of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) designed to educate the public about pool safety to reduce childhood drownings, submersion injuries and entrapments. There are a number of resources available to learn about pool safety, and we encourage you to take a few moments to review some of the resources we have pulled together for you.
- Pool Safely website
- Pool education and training

Remember to be safe as you enjoy the summer!
