In An Emergency

 

What To Do If A Child Falls Into A Pool

  1. Yell for help and check the scene to make sure that you can safely help the child.
  2. Get the child out of the pool and onto the pool deck.
  3. Check for consciousness tap and shout, “Are you okay?”
  4. If someone is with you, have them call 9-1-1. Determine if the child is breathing: tilt the head back, if you don’t hear or feel breathing or see the chest rising, give 2 Rescue Breaths, then check for a pulse. Begin Rescue Breathing or CPR immediately and continue until emergency help arrives.
  5. If you are alone and the child is not breathing and/or does not have a pulse, start Rescue Breathing or CPR immediately. After one minute, call 9-1-1. Return to the child and continue CPR until help arrives.
  6. To prevent drowning get your baby into swimming lessons.
