Drowning is a leading, but preventable, cause of death for children under five. As the weather heats up and we head into school holidays, it’s imperative to remember the importance of pool safety.
Last year the State Government implemented changes to the pool safety regulations in Queensland. The changes include compulsory registration of residential pools, spas as well as changes to signage, fences and gates surrounding the pool.
A current CPR sign, which much now be displayed on all pools and spas, can be picked up from my office free of charge. If you’d like one please contact my office on 3205 9977.
