Some Shocking Statistics

– American Institute for Preventive Medicine.

A child can drown in the time it takes to answer the phone.

For children under four years of age, a swimming pool is more dangerous than an automobile. In fact, children this age are 14 times as likely to drown in a pool than be killed in a motor vehicle accident. In Louisiana, 30 children less than 15-years old drowned in 1999, and almost half (47%) of those were less than five years of age.

65% of preschooler drownings occur in the child’s home pool and 33% at the homes of friends, neighbors or relatives

These Statistics really do speak for themselves. Your child's safety as well as your safety is our number one concern.
