Drowning is the second leading cause of death of children under the age of 4!
Drownings rose in 2015, and of the 9 fatal drownings that occurred in the Las Vegas valley last year, 8 of them were children 4 and under. The saddest part is that drowning can easily be avoided. Especially when you consider that the majority of these drownings happen in residential swimming pools. At Safe Defenses we are committed to a safe and fun filled summer for the entire Las Vegas valley. As a part of this we urge homeowners, parents, grandparents, and caregivers to invest in a CPR or lifesaving procedure class available throughout Las Vegas or Henderson.
Avoid Swimming Pool Drownings
The American Red Cross considers the lack of barriers, such as pool fences, to be one of the most significant factors influencing drowning risks. This information available as more and more states legislate the use of swimming pool fencing as a security measure to prevent young children from accessing swimming pools. As your Las Vegas swimming pool product leader we offer glass pool fencing, mesh pool fences, wrought iron pool fences, safety nets and swimming pool covers to prevent pool access all year.
