There are many people who have the misconception that those small plastic pools that they have in their yard for their children to play in during the summer months are not deadly but unfortunately they can be. According to a study every five days during the hot summer months a child will die in one of those plastic portable pools. According to the study, from 2001 to 2009, there were thirty five near drownings and two hundred nine deaths of children under the age of twelve. In addition ninety four percent were under the age of five.
There are some parents who see these plastic pools as a summer time babysitter. All you have to do is inflate the pool, fill it with water, and instant playground for the children because most children love to play in the water. They do not think about the safety aspect of the whole deal. These pools range in depth from eighteen inches to approximately four feet.
The health department also asked residents to discard old tires, buckets, drums or any water holding containers; poke holes in tires used as bumpers on docks; keep roof gutters and downspouts clear of debris; keep trash containers covered; empty plastic wading pools at least once a week and store indoors when not in use; drain unused swimming pools; fill in tree-rot holes and hollow stumps that hold water; change the water in birdbaths and plant urns at least once a week; and store boats upside down or drain rainwater weekly.
