Learn CPR to Support Child Pool Safety
When child pool safety is a priority, you can never be too prepared. Equipping yourself and family members with CPR (cardio pulmonary resuscitation) training is an essential step in ensuring safety for your child around your pool.
CPR can help save a loved one’s life. Being able to administer CPR is a skill that anyone can master quite easily, and knowing what to do when the situation calls for CPR will give you added confidence and peace of mind. We recommend that all pool owners learn CPR and also make sure a child’s caregivers and supervisors know CPR, too.
Though not a substitute for CPR training, the University of Washington School of Medicine offers information and training resources to help you learn CPR on its web site.
You can view illustrated guides and video demonstrations of CPR techniques, then print out CPR instructions to keep on hand. You’ll find CPR procedures for adults, children, infants and even pets, as well as first aid for choking and other emergency situations that will be good to know for child pool safety.
Please review their CPR resources and enroll in a CPR training course to support your child pool safety efforts and keep your pool area and home a safe place.
