Check your pool
Residents are being urged to check their pools for any potential dangers in the lead up to summer. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in young children in NSW. Mulgoa state Liberal MP Tanya Davies said these deaths were avoidable. “Any child drowning is one too many. We can avoid drowning deaths and injuries by ensuring child-resistant pool fences are wellmaintained and pool gates are self-closing or selflatching, and regularly checked,” Ms Davies said.
