Drowning is the only childhood death that can totally be prevented.
Installing a pool fence around a swimming pool where a young child spends time
can prevent drownings. Pool fences, unlike alarms or covers, create a barrier

non-climbable and when the pool fence is installed correctly it prevents a
small child from getting over it, under it, through it or opening it.
Installing a self-closing, self-latching, key-lockable walk-through gate adds a
layer of safety, as well as convenience.
Swimming pool fences in Naples and Fort Myers are so effective in preventing drowning accidents that many States including Florida have now mandated legislation requiring pool

Who needs a pool fence? Swimming pool safety fences should be installed
around every backyard swimming pool at a home where young children live.

Pool fences provide the best of both worlds – families can enjoy their
backyard swimming pool and at the same time know their small children are safe.
If a small child opens a door and walks out to the backyard swimming pool he or
she is protected from accidentally falling into the pool if a pool safety fence
has been installed. When pool fences are installed around a backyard swimming
pool, pool safety truly is no accident.
