The Consumer Product Safety Commission is sponsoring Pool Safely Day activities from July 22 to 29 in order to raise awareness about the danger of child drowning. Community events throughout the week in 30 states will include free swimming lessons and CPR training. Parents can also learn safety tips to reduce the risks posed by swimming pools. According to the CPSC, 90 kids under the age of 15 have drowned since this past Memorial Day. Young children under the age of five are most at risk for drowning.
