Homeowners in Springfield and Western Massachusetts who have pools in their backyard must adhere to specific state safety barrier requirements and have a pool fence installed in their home. In Massachusetts, residential pools must be surrounded by a barrier that is at least 48 inches above the ground. The maximum vertical clearance between the ground and the bottom of the barrier must not be more than 2 inches. Openings in the barrier shall not allow the passage of a 4–inch–diameter sphere. Access gates for the fence must be equipped to accommodate a locking device. Pedestrian access gates shall open outward away from the pool and shall be self–closing and have a self–latching device.
In addition to these pool safety fence requirements, homeowners in Western Massachusetts or Springfield, should consider additional layers of protection like a pool safety cover, pool and door alarms, water safety training, and CPR certifications for adults. As a homeowner implementing these safety layer may seem daunting, but this is where the years of experience and expertise of Life Saver of Upstate New York comes in!
Protect Your Family From Accidental Drownings. Install A Life Saver Pool Fence.
The unfortunate reality is that pools pose a real danger in homes without a child safety pool fence. Drowning is a danger that homeowners with children cannot afford to ignore and must act on to protect their family members. Unprotected pools are considered to be more dangerous than a loaded gun. In fact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that approximately one in five people who die from drownings are children under the age of 14. Furthermore, the CDC reports that drowning kills more children ages 1-4 years than any other cause of death with the exception of birth defects.
