May 26, 2010: Consumer Product Safety Commision Announces Pool Safely Campaign

At a press conference at the Fort  Lauderdale Aquatic Complex today, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) launched Pool Safely, its new public education effort to reduce child drownings, and non-fatal submersions, and entrapments in swimming pools and spas. The Pool Safely campaign stresses that pool safety education and simple safety adjustments can greatly reduce the risk of pool related accidents.

The Pool Safely campaign is a key part of the CPSC's efforts to carry out requirements outlined in the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act (P&SS Act), federal legislation signed into law in 2007 mandating new requirements for pool and spa safety.

According to the CPSP press release, Chairman Inez Tenenbaum, chairman of the CPSC, says “preventing child drownings year  round is a priority for the CPSC," adding that there is hope this campaign will begin  “national conversation with parents and children, pool owners and operators and industry professionals about the simple  safety steps they can take to protect themselves and their families in and around pools and spas. “

CPSC explains that it is partnering with national, regional and local organizations in the children's  safety and drowning prevention communities to reach the widest possible audience and build a sustainable network that will ensure the campaign's messaging is delivered for years to come. CPSC encourages that the Pool Safely campaign will highlight the need to implement a "personal system of safety" that consists of adding as many proven water safety practices as possible in and around pools and spas.
