The Best Preparation is Prevention

Preventing an emergency is the best preparation: Never leave a child alone in or near a swimming pool, spa, or any other body of water!

Remember, it is not just swimming pools that are potentially dangerous. An infant or child can drown in any body of water, including spas and hot tubs.
