The Trophy Club Fire Department has partnered with Cook Children’s to promote water safety. Visit cookchildrens.org to review proper water safety and drowning prevention.

Did you know that Texas is #1 in the nation for child pool drownings? Prepare for the swim season with these simple steps:

  • Install four-sided fences with self-latching gates.
  • Use pool/door/child alarms.
  • Wear life vests with U.S. Coast Guard-approved labels.
  • Insist on adult, non-distracted Water Watchers. 
  • Take family CPR lessons.
  • Schedule water safety and swim lessons.
  • Create and follow all pool rules.
  • Update pool drains and cleaning systems.
