Safer People (Timmy Tadpole): Always provide constant adult supervision and never allow a child to be unattended. Develop swim skills through on-going and qualified instruction. Learn and practice proper behavior in and around the water.
Safer Response (Gilbert Guppy): Learn and renew CPR, first-aid and rescue techniques through ongoing certification courses. Keep an emergency action plan, rescue equipment, and phone by the pool at all times.
