By DG Staff

ABU DHABI 13 June 2020: Abu Dhabi Police is raising public’s awareness for preventing children from swimming alone in pools.

It warned of the dangers of parents failing to adequately monitor their children, stressing the importance of providing children with swimming vests if required, and ensuring all doors leading to pools are locked, so that children who do not know how to swim cannot access the area.

The ADP also warned against being negligent and ignorant of related safety instructions to protect children from drowning, adding that such incidents could occur in just a few minutes if safety procedures are not followed, said Wam.

The ADP also asked families to install safety fences around pools in their homes to prevent children from accessing them alone, as well ensure that the floors are not slippery, to avoid accidents.
