Make Swimming Pools Safer

Medically Reviewed by Melissa Conrad Stöppler, MD

Get helpful swimming safety tips.Nine people drown per day in the U.S. That's the average. It does not even include drownings from boat accidents. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), drowning rates have declined over the years, but drowning is still the second leading cause of injury-related deaths of children.

While most drownings of infants under a year of age occur in bathtubs, buckets, or toilets, most drownings of children 1-4 years of age occur in residential swimming pools. The facts surrounding the drownings of young children in residential pools can send a chill down any parent's spine:

  • Most children who drowned in pools were last seen in the home.
  • Most young children who drowned in pools had been out of sight for less than five minutes.
  • The majority of children who drowned in pools were in the care of one or both parents at the time.

If you have a pool at home, be sure it is as safe as possible. Never, ever, leave a child unsupervised in or near a pool.

The American Red Cross recommends the following steps to maximize the safety of home swimming pools.

Swimming: Related Topics

Swimming is a fun, active, and healthy way to spend leisure time. However, in the past two
decades we have seen an increase in the number of Recreational Water Illness (RWI)
outbreaks associated with swimming pools, water parks, hot tubs, lakes, rivers, and oceans.
CDC's Healthy Swimming program offers information and resources to raise awareness
about RWIs and how to prevent them by practicing "Healthy Swimming" behaviors.
