Drowning tragedies are often preventable with parental attention and basic water safety education.
According to the Houston Fire Department, “Active, focused, adult supervision is the most important safety measure to prevent a water-related tragedy involving a child. The vast majority of children who drown in pools do so in the backyards of their own homes or of relatives.” The Houston Apartment Association urges residents and their children to learn pool safety practices and CPR.
