On Thursday July 24, 2014, Safe Kids Maricopa had another great press conference as part of our Zero In On Water Safety press conference series. This time, the topic of discussion was at-home pools and barriers. We held the press conference at Rondo Pools in Phoenix where Kelly Liebermann from Phoenix Fire Department showed us an example of an awesome pool barrier that anyone with a child should consider installing.
This particular pool gate has a feature that all parents will love! When the gate opens, an alarm sounds to alert anyone outside in the backyard and the alarm is loud enough that it can be heard from indoors as well. With that alarm feature, you will always know when the pool gate has been opened so you know if your child has entered the inside of the pool area without your permission or prior knowledge.
Thank you to Phoenix Fire Department, Rondo Pools, and everyone who attended the press conference to help keep kids safe in and around water!
