Each day in America approximately 10 people drown. These drowning accidents often occur in residential swimming pools or nearby lakes. Many of the victims are children between the ages of one and four years old and drowning is the second leading cause of death for children from one to 14 years old.

Studies have shown that where residential pools are fenced in, drowning accidents decrease by 50 to 80%. In nonfatal accidental drowning victims often receive severe injuries such as brain damage. In these cases, the victims may be left with long-term disabilities such as memory loss, loss of basic functions, and learning disabilities.

Who is at Risk?

With the long hot summers in Texas families and children often spend time at the lake or a local swimming pool. Though this is a fun way to spend a hot summer day many people including kids are not good swimmers.  Often public pools do not have trained lifeguards on standby in case of accident.
