Pools can be great fun but they are also dangerous places. You should be aware that a pool is a potentially life-threatening hazard and plan to make it the safest
place it can be. Mixing sun, water, hazardous chemicals, electricity and kids together can produce a deceptively toxic cocktail.

Hundreds of people, many of them kids just 1 to 4 years old, drown in backyard pools in the USA every year. Thousands more are admitted to Hospital EDs for emergency treatment following an 'immersion accident'. Hundreds of thousands of others become infected or suffer falls, cuts, poisoning, electrocution, skin complaints and eye damage. Some of those folks become permanently disabled and others die from their injuries.

World-wide, the number of fatal drownings is even more shocking. The World Health Organization estimates that 388,000 people accidentally drown every year around the globe. We're trying to make a difference to these figures by gifting The Pool Safety Bible to as many people as we can.

The Pool Safety Bible covers dozens of different aspects of Pool Safety and tells you what you can do to make your own patch safe. Subjects covered range from transport, storage, use and handling of chemicals to explanations of the pros and cons of each type of Safety Barrier (and how to raise the money for Safety Equipment). From what to do in a chemical accident to where to learn CPR for free.

Pretty much every day you can read yet another newspaper story about the tragic death of a toddler in a backyard pool. Or a river, a lake or a bathtub. Or a story about a teenager who is paralyzed from the neck down from a diving injury. Or someone who has damaged or lost their sight from a pool chemical burn.

Most pool accidents are predictable and therefore, to an extent, preventable. All that's needed is that those at risk, i.e. those that live around open water such as a pool, river, lake etc., learn the facts about Safety and learn what they can do to protect themselves and their loved ones.

As already mentioned above, The Pool Safety Bible is FREE - please download a copy, read it and learn from it. Please also encourage others - whether they own their own pool or not - to download a copy and read it. By working together we (you and I and all our friends) can make a significant difference to the number of all pool-related accidents.

Thanks for reading!
