Backyard Lifeguard Campaign

KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE THIS SUMMER.

The home swimming pool is the most common location for injury and drowning death for children under five.

We can all work together to protect children in our community.

  • Closely supervise kids at all times
  • Learn how to resuscitate
  • Check your pool barriers meet the current safety standards
  • Keep your barriers clear of objects and plants that kids can use to climb into the pool area
  • Teach your kids to swim and be safe around pools
  • Ensure your pool gate is shut at all times
