Grants to be Awarded to Encourage State and Local Governments To Promote Pool Safety and Combat Drownings and Drain Entrapments

CPSC expects to award $1 million in 1-year grants in FY 2016 to reduce deaths and injuries from drowning and drain entrapments in pools and spas.


Every summer hundreds of children and even some adults drown in swimming pools.  The causes can be many but, are usually due to inattention by supervising parents, poor safety equipment, dangerous drains or other similar causes.  It is good to see that grants are being made to help promote pool safety and reduce these tragic drownings.
