Summertime in California is special. Long days at the beach and afternoons relaxing at the pool. No wonder so many people come to live in sunny California. I know it's not for the California home insurance policies! :-)
While it’s true, the weather here is pretty darn good all year long, there is something extra special about the summer.
During my Esurance days, living in Northern California, we had a small kidney bean shaped pool in our backyard. The first summer in that home was when my two oldest children learned to swim. We have fond memories of that summer, of that home, and playing with the kids in the pool.
While our home here in Southern California doesn’t have a pool in the backyard, we do have a community pool, and we still get many opportunities for new summertime memories.
In order to keep all the memories positive, it’s best if you practice good pool safety etiquette. The reality is that the pools is a hazard, and there are real injuries that happen … and some even result in death.
According to Pool Safely the CDC reports that drowning is the #1 cause of unintentional death for children age 1-4 years. In fact, the annual average for drowning deaths for children between 0-14 years from 2011 – 2013 390 per year.
In the State of California, we have the highest incidence of death as reported by USA Swimming.
Injury while enjoying your pool is not what you intend, so make sure that your family and guests are always safe.
Here are a few pool safety tips to help you get the best, and safest experience with your home pool.
This summer season you'll have extra fun if you review these pool safety tips. You'll have the confidence that you've created a safe environment for your friends and family. You'll also feel great because you will have made your home insurance agent happy in the knowledge that you're practicing great home safety and loss mitigation practices. :-) Enjoy!
