Home Security Tips -Pool Alarm-Swimming and Kids Safety

The recent change to daylight savings time in Colorado signals the arrival of spring to me. With spring it means summer is close at hand. It brings back fond memories of family trips to Michigan, family outings, BBQ's, neighborhood get togethers, sun and a necessary ingredient in anything we did as a family-SWIMMING.

My dad, may he rest in peace, was on the very first swim team at Ohio State University back in da good old days. So that explains why water was always nearby in our recreation.

There was no pool in Bay Village, a Cleveland, Ohio suburb, when I was growing up so he almost single handedly started one. Petitions, raising money, the whole schmear-all was his doing. I think it is still there nearly 50 years later. AHHHH the good old days.
Enough of the warm fuzzy stuff!

On the negative side drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children between the age of one and 14. (Centers for Disease Control, 2003)

Unfortunately nine people drown in the United States every day. (CDC)

Drowning can occur in a heartbeat. You are with your child in the backyard pool. The doorbell rings.

You take off and are gone for two minutes-120 seconds. While you are gone, the child falls into the water which you discover when you get back. It may be too late.

What everyone who owns a pool should have is a POOL PROTECTOR POOL ALARM. This is an electronic monitoring system that automatically sounds an alarm when children or pets fall into your unsupervised pool.

In a drowning, lives can be lost in a matter of seconds, so every second counts. A loud alarm sounds when a child or pet falls into the pool. The alarm sounds both poolside and inside the home from remote receiver-perhaps enough to save a life.
