Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Pool Guard Texas is offering a discount on pool fences and encouraging people to observe National Prevent Drowning Month during May.
As the spring gets hotter and the summer gets closer, pools across the area are beginning to open for the summer. So May is the perfect time to observe National Prevent Drowning Month, and Pool Guard Texas is making sure that its customers know about the danger that could reside in their backyard.
With proper protection and knowledge, however, that danger can be greatly minimized.
“The best way to protect a pool in a home, and to protect people living in that house and neighbors, is to install a pool enclosure or fence,” Rick Leviton, of Pool Guard Texas, said. “But this is not a fail-safe measure, and residential pools are not the only ones that need to be protected. Whether it's the backyard or community pool, a local lake, mountain river, beach, or activity on the ocean, the danger of drowning is present whenever families spend time beside the water.”
The National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA) is proud to support May as National Drowning Prevention Month in a collaborative effort across the country with other organizations involved in water safety, drowning prevention, aquatic safety and recreational activities. The main goal of the National Drowning Prevention Month campaign is to promote water safety, a central focus of the NDPA's mission as an organization. NDPA recognizes and celebrates the vital role that swimming and aquatic-related activities play in the physical and mental health, as well as quality of life, of Americans.
“For the month of May, to help increase awareness, Pool Guard Texas will offer a discounted rate for a removable pool safety fence for $13.80 per square foot, which is a $5 discount from normal prices,” Leviton said. “Though a pool fence cannot prevent all drownings, a fence is the first sign of pool and aquatic safety, and it signifies that all precautions are being taken.”

“If someone has a pool in their backyard, in their neighborhood or plan to visit a lake, the ocean or other body of water this spring or summer, it is very important to spend a few minutes discovering ways to always be safe in and around water,” Leviton said.
