Pool Safely Information and Resources: Reducing Child Drownings, Near-Drownings, Submersions, and Entrapment Incidents in Swimming Pools and Spas

Pool Safely is a national public education campaign supporting the requirements of Section 1407 of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act, and it works with partners around the country to reduce child drownings, near-drownings, submersions, and entrapment incidents in swimming pools and spas.

Ellyn Pollack, public affairs specialist in the Consumer Product Safety Commission's Office of Communications, presented Pool Safely's plans for 2014-2015, discussed the new Pool Safely Pledge, unveiled some of the new Spanish and English PSAs and provided a recap of the materials and information available to parents, children, families, pool and spa owners and operators.
