The media has reported an increase since January 2020 of drownings at residential locations, such as a child’s home, a family or friend’s house or a neighbor’s residence. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s Pool Safely Campaign Leader Nikki Fleming discusses a new report and provides tips for swimming at home, especially since the summer swim season will likely look a bit different this year. Social distancing guidelines have paused many traditional group swimming lessons and curious children may be searching for new things to do at home. Coupled with adults who may be distracted by competing priorities, continued vigilance to water safety remains as important as ever. Fleming specializes in children’s product safety and serves as the team lead for the Pool Safely drowning prevention education campaign.
