The Best Offence is a Good Defence

Safe Barriers Save Lives: Drowning is one of the leading causes of unintentional death for Australian children under 5 years of age.
While pool and spa barriers can be effective in reducing the risk of drowning incidents, evidence suggests that many drowning
deaths are the result of barriers that are faulty or non-compliant with Australian standards.
The Kidsafe Victoria ‘Safe Barriers Save Lives’ campaign encourages pool and spa owners to set their home pool defence for Summer
by registering and checking their pool and spa barriers. Your home pool defence should also include active adult supervision,
water awareness and CPR and first aid training.
