1. Never swim alone: Even a teenager or adult should swim with a buddy.

2. Pick a look-out: Designate an adult to be close enough to reach out and touch a child under 4 years old whenever they are in the water.

3. Don't waste time: If your child is missing, look in the pool first.

4. Keep a cell phone nearby: Every second counts when you have to call 911, but keep it turned off or silenced while you watch swimmers in the pool.

5. Install alarms: Any door or window leading to a pool area can be outfitted to alert adults to unexpected access.
