Firefighters take on ‘silent killer’

PINELLAS PARK – The fire department’s division of Fire and Life Safety Management has launched a series of drowning prevention programs in light of two recent water deaths within city limits.

The programs cover all phases of pool and other water safety.

“Drowning is considered a silent child killer,” said Suzanne Boisvert who heads the division. “We’ve had two in the city since January.”

Most people believe that a child screams and splashes the water when he or she falls into a pool. They do not. In fact, they generally sink to the bottom of a pool before anyone realizes it.

Boisvert urged homeowners to designate “pool watchers” when children are in or near the water during birthday parties and other events. A child can tumble into the water without anyone realizing it.

A safe pool includes locked doors, perimeter fences and other features that prevent accidental child drownings.

The programs are being held with the cooperation of neighborhood associations and other civic groups. Further information is available by calling Boisvert at 541-0713, ext. 3910.
