Fences & Gates
Proper fencing around a pool (on all 4 sides and 4 feet high) with a self-latching gate can reduce drowning for young children by 50%.
17% of drownings at a private residence occur in above-ground pools.
An Australian study found that in cases of drowning deaths where a barrier had been breached, 63% of victims entered through an open or unlocked gate.
