Winter pool safety reminder

Even though the weather is cooling down in Brisbane, the swimming pool is still a very desirable play area for children.
Luckily in this video (link below), these children were being supervised.

These are some of the most common things I find that are left too close to pool fences that can be used to climb on by children:

  • Outdoor furniture
  • Pot Plants
  • Toys
  • kennels
  • Tree trunks
  • Rocks

This link also has some great reminders of gate safety.
