Pool Safety Tip: When considering someone to be your nanny or babysitter in your home, find out if they are capable of swimming to the bottom of your pool and retrieving a ten pound weight to make sure they could assist your child if needed. If your caretaker takes your child swimming make sure they know to never answer the door or phone while your child is in the water and secure all safety fencing after use.
