Gates & Fences Prevent Toddler Drownings.
According the annual Royal Life Saving Report on Drowning, released in September 2018, last year over 50% of toddler drownings involved faulty, propped open or even non-existent pool gates or fences.
With December and January the worst months for pool drownings, it’s time to get your pool gate checked.
“There is a link between pool fencing laws and rates of child drowning in pools. Areas of Australia with fewer exemptions from best practice fencing standards and more regular inspections experience fewer fatal drowning incidents.” Royal Life Saving
