Summer is finally here, and that means that many are headed to the pool. Drexel Heights Fire Dept. wants to remind parents of the importance of safety around the pool, with the following Safety Message: BLOCK, WATCH, AND LEARN:
- BLOCK your pool/spa area with effective barriers like fences and latching gates.
- WATCH your children around the water and never leave them unattended.
- LEARN skills like how to administer CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
