Pool Alarm Systems

Based on a study from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on pool alarm systems, "On average each year 350 children under the age of five years drown in swimming pools, with most deaths occurring in residential settings. Also each year, on average, another 2,600 children under five years of age are treated in hospital emergency rooms for near-drowning incidents in swimming pools. About 79 percent of these incidents occur at a home location. These numbers have remained relatively unchanged over the past several years."
