As a non-profit organization focused on improving pool safety, we are here to help those who need it most. We don’t want any children to be at an elevated risk for a pool-related accident simply because their family can’t afford the proper safety equipment. If you would like to inquire about the possibility of a pool fence donation for your family, or for someone you know, please feel free to contact us today.
At Pool Safety Foundation, we believe pool barriers to be the best option for securing the area around a residential pool. Kids are naturally curious, and they are going to be drawn toward a pool because they know it represents fun and excitement. However, while pools are fun for kids when properly supervised, they can be dangerous if a child wanders up to the edge without an adult present. By adding a pool fence, it may be possible to prevent the child from ever getting near the edge of the pool in the first place.
Of course, we understand that installing a pool fence can be costly. You need to purchase the fence itself, and you’ll likely need to pay someone to install it for you, as well. These costs add up, and they don’t even mention that you may need to take a bit of time off work to supervise the installation or deal with other issues that may come up. When viewed this way, it shouldn’t be such a surprise that so many people still don’t have a pool fence protecting their swim area.
The difficulties that some families face in obtaining a pool fence are exactly why the Pool Safety Foundation exists in the first place. We understand these issues, and we don’t want them to stand in the way of pool safety. Every time we are able to make a pool fence donation, we know that we’ve done a good thing for the safety of those involved. As our foundation continues to grow, we hope to make as many of these donations as possible moving forward.
Even if we aren’t able to make a pool fence donation for your situation at this time, we may be able to help in other ways. There are other pieces of safety equipment which may improve the overall safety of your pool area, and we can provide valuable education on this topic as well. While we believe that a pool barrier is the best available solution to secure the pool area around your home, it is always better to take a smaller step toward safety than no step at all.
Thank you for taking the time to visit the Pool Safety Foundation, and please consider contacting us for a pool safety fence today if you would like to inquire about a donation. We will be happy to review your information, and we’ll do our best to help.
