What’s the problem?
September 27, 2010 – Sadly, there have been nearly 400 child drownings and near-tragedies nationwide since Memorial Day weekend. These frightening statistics led the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to bring its Pool Safely campaign to Minnesota. The campaign was enacted to commemorate Pool Safely Day and prevent child drownings and drain entrapments.
The program is urging parents and children to remain vigilant in and around pools, spas, and public and private water parks and aquatic facilities nationwide year-round. CPSC Chairman Inez M. Tenenbaum said: “Drowning prevention and swimming safety are important year-round. We at the CPSC have made pool and spa safety one of our top priorities and we are proud that water parks and aquatic facilities around the country are joining us to recognize Pool Safely Day. We want to encourage everyone to remember that you never know which safety step will save a life…until it does.”
