Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Sun Valley
Sun Valley, Nevada has only been recognizable on the map for approximately 100 years. It wasn’t until the early 1900s when a couple of families came to the area raise goats, hogs, chicken, and sheep on the land that people from nearby Reno and Sparks began to take notice.
Today, the community of Sun Valley hardly resembles its agricultural roots, now being home to nearly 20,000 residents and a thriving town with numerous homes, apartments, and businesses located on the many streets throughout.
The community has enjoyed a stable population of just over 19,000 for the past decade or more, with the majority of the individuals being families. As of the 2000 census, 40.7% of the individuals had children under the age of 18, with 54.3% being married couples living together and 13.7% being a female householder with no husband present. What many of these families have in common (apart from having youngsters within their household) is a pool.
Given the dry and semi-arid conditions of Sun Valley, a pool is the ideal way to cool off during the spring, summer, and even early weeks of fall.
Reinforcing Pool Safety Throughout Sun Valley
Swimming pools are often sources of fun and relaxation, but they can also be a source of distraught. The CDC has made it no secret that drowning is the leading cause of unintentional deaths across this nation, and that a number of these individuals who are drowning are innocent children.
Pool safety should be paramount not only in Sun Valley, but throughout all of Nevada where pools are almost a backyard staple in many communities. There are a variety of things that homeowners with pools can do to prevent injury, including:
- Enclosing the pool in a fence and with a latched lockable gate
- Equipping the pool with an alarm
- Posting clear signage that dictates appropriate poolside behavior (i.e. No running, no diving, etc.)
- Ensuring that children (and adults!) have taken formal swimming lessons prior to entering the pool
- Ensuring that someone present has first aid training and can assist if necessary
- Having a watchful adult present while young children are in the pool
Another important part to keeping a pool safe is properly maintaining it. Pool owners should be regularly checking their pool’s equipment and ensuring that hazardous cleaning materials are appropriately stored and locked up so that children and pets will not come in contact with them.
There are many steps one can take to prevent a swimming pool accident, but injuries may and still do occur.
