With school out for the summer, kids will be looking for relief from the brutal heat. Swimming pools can be full of fun and enjoyment, but creating a safe environment should be a priority for every swimming pool owner.

For some great recommendations to consider when evaluating your pool’s safety, visit poolsafely.gov.

Are you and your family ready for a safe and enjoyable summer? Answer the following six questions to find out:

1. Is there a fence around the perimeter of your pool or spa?

2. Do you have self-closing and self-latching gates?

3. Are there door, gate or pool alarms in use?

4. Does your pool have anti-entrapment drain covers that are compliant with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act?

5. Is someone in your family trained in CPR, first aid and emergency response?

6. Has everyone learned how to swim?
