Pool Cues

Think safety first, then fun

It's almost summer and time to open your backyard swimming pool. But be careful -- pools can be dangerous.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these safety tips:

  • Install a four-sided fence with self-closing and self-latching gates around the pool. The fence should be at least 4 feet tall.
  • Install a telephone near the pool and post the emergency number -- 911 -- in an easy-to-see place.
  • Learn CPR, in case of an accident.
