Pool Safely: When It Comes to Pool and Spa Safety, More Is Better


The best way to promote safety in swimming pools and spas is by adopting and practicing layers of protection. Because you never know which one of these steps will make a difference-until it does. This webinar, led by Ellyn Pollack, leader of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's Pool Safely campaign, will address levels of protection in and around the water to ensure that children and families stay safer year-round. The webinar will also provide an overview of the information and resources the Pool Safely campaign provides to promote water safety.
