In the summer, swimming is one of the most popular activities, and if you’re someone with a home pool, you know that very well. Did you know that drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional death, and that small children have some of the highest drowning rates, though? Consider extending home security to your swimming pool.

Security for your pool can take a few different forms:

  • Enclose the pool area with tall, self-locking fences. Keep intruders and unsupervised children out by installing tall fences to protect your pool area.

  • Install gate contacts and water level detectors. Place contacts on gates so you’ll know when they’re opened and install water level detectors to prevent flooding or filter damage.

  • Outdoor video surveillance around the area. Monitor your pool and the surrounding area even when you are not in the vicinity.

  • Use a sturdy pool cover when your pool is not in use. Keep your pool covered when not in use to prevent unsupervised children from jumping in.

While increasing security is a great step, it’s also really important to teach your children and their friends basic pool safety. Make sure that everyone who gets in the pool knows how to swim, and that they have supervision (that isn’t someone bent over their cell phone!) Enforce the local neighborhood pool’s rules, and consider giving young swimmers flotation devices. Better safe than sorry, after all!

A combination of security and education will help keep your kids splashing in the pool all summer long, and you’ll feel a lot better for it.

Security Everywhere

Houston Security Company

Western Eagle can provide security for any kind of setting – you name it. Whether it’s apartment complexes, schools, or even convention centers, our teams are ready for any property. What you may not know about us is that we also provide personal security. That is, we can go as general as walking around the perimeter of your property or as specific as bodyguard work. You might think that this is an extreme, but in today’s world, you can never be too careful.

Say, for instance, that you have a stalker. Before, these kind of people usually had to put a lot of work into finding out where the object of their affections lived. They literally had to stalk people from place to place. Now, with the advent of the internet, it’s very easy to google someone and find right away where they live. Suddenly, they just got a lot scarier, didn’t they? Rest assured, it’s just as easy and quick to get a security team out to your property and instruct them on who they absolutely cannot let onto the property. With the advent of the internet, security threats have gone up, but so has security protection.

The above example may seem extreme, but it does happen.

Facebook and other social media companies have actually advised people not to say that they’re going on vacation for whatever period of time online. Why? It’s because so many people have public profiles, and thieves can run a process where they look for people who say that they’re going on vacation. They now know where all the empty houses are, and to ignore any lights that might still be on. A good way to protect yourself against that? Get a security team to monitor your house while you’re away on vacation! Sure, you have a burglar alarm, but who wants to wake up to a call from the alarm company saying that there’s an issue in your house? You’d rather wake up to a call from Western Eagle saying that everything is under control, right?

Suddenly, personal protection doesn’t sound like a bad idea, right? It is important that you know how to take the smaller security steps, like keeping your personal information off the Internet and making sure your house has adequate locks and alarm systems. When you need something bigger though, call Western Eagle Security and sit down with us.
