Allstate will host a pool safety event next weekend in Mesa focused on drowning prevention and general tips for keeping kids, as well as others, safe during the summer pool season.
“Swimming pools can bring a lot of fun to the summer months, but they can also bring a lot of risks into the picture,” said Mesa Allstate agent Ramon Henriquez in a statement. “It’s important to go through a checklist of safety measures and legal liabilities well before you invite your first guest over to enjoy the pool.”
The event features a presentation on water safety from the American Red Cross as well as a raffle and water safety swag.
Water safety tips from the Consumer Product Safety Commission include keeping a careful eye on children and others in a pool environment at all times, exercising caution when dealing with pool toys or implements, and thoroughly educating children and adults in swimming, first aid, CPR and other water safety practices.
The event, which is open to the public and free of charge, is scheduled to run from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, at the Rhodes Aquatic Complex located at 1860 S. Longmore.
