Pool Safely is a national public education campaign that works with partners around the Pool Safely PSAcountry to reduce child drownings and entrapments in swimming pools and spas.

On average, more than 4,000 children under the age of 5 annually require emergency department treatment for pool- and spa-related nonfatal injuries. The majority of these children are between the ages of 1 and 3.

Fortunately, there are steps that can be taken to protect children from drowning incidents. By understanding and sharing the Simple Safety Steps That Save Lives and taking the Pool Safely Pledge, parents and caregivers can prevent drowning-related injuries.
