For years children have been flocking to the nearest public pool to dive, splash and cannonball. Those unbearably hot summer days can make it impossible to do anything but go to the pool and cool down.

If you and your children are spending a lot of time at a pool, we want you to be prepared. Sun and pool safety were a few of our Summer Safety Tips for Kids that we encourage you consider before heading out to the pool. To make sure you’re well prepared for a day at the pool, use the following list as a guide for what to pack:

We hope these tips help you have a safe and enjoyable day at the pool with your kids. For parents with older kids who may be going to the pool without adult supervision, share these tips with them to be sure they are also well prepared.
