A Bad Economy Doesn't Have To Mean You Can't Keep Your Kids Safe.

Times are tough for almost everyone today, but that doesn’t have to mean you can’t keep your kids out of danger. The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act established a Grant Program to assist states in implementing new laws and regulations for pool and spa safety. Check out this site and see if you are eligible for funds to make your neighborhood pools safer.

The Act was created after Virginia Graeme Baker, a 7-year old girl, a twin sister, the youngest of five daughters and grand-daughter of former Secretary of State, James Baker III. She died after being trapped by the drain in a hot tub.

If you’d like information on the entire legislation, here’s the link: http://www.poolsafely.gov/wp-content/uploads/modelvgb.pdf

Accidents like this don’t need to happen. There is help for you.
