Pools offer cool relief from summer's scorching temperatures, but they can be dangerous. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for kids under 4 in Riverside County and, according to CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department, more than 80% of all drownings happen in backyard pools. Please remember to closely watch children in and around the pool. Their lives depend on it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vus67t5gVE
