Safe Pools Rule! Water Safety Campaign
Henderson Professional Fire Fighters created the Safe Pools Rule! campaign, a summer-long initiative for water safety and drowning prevention. The campaign goal is to increase awareness as drowning is a leading cause of preventable and unintentional death for young children in southern Nevada.
The program is comprised of three P’s of pool safety:
• Patrol – Most tragedies occur in seconds. Always designate an adult to actively watch children in the water.
• Protect – Installing four-sided pool fencing, door alarm, locks, and other safety measures provide defensive barriers between your child and the pool.
• Prepare – Create your summer safety plan ahead of the game by enrolling in child swimming lessons, adult CPR classes, and ensure every water watcher knows how to call 911 in case of emergency.
Henderson firefighters partner with Las Vegas firefighters and the Red Cross, to emphasize the importance of learning Hands-Only CPR. Sign up for a Hands-Only CPR through the City of Henderson.
