According to reports by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, approximately one in five people who die from drownings are children under the age of 14. Even worse, the CDC Reports that drowning kills more children ages 1-4 years than any other cause with the exception of birth defects.
This is why Kids Safe is encouraging pool owners in Fairfield County, CT to install a pool fence and other Layers of Protection that extend well beyond just fencing too. However, a professionally installed Life Saver Pool Fence is the best and safest pool fence barrier available for homeowners to protect their family from accidental drownings.
Fairfield County in Connecticut is home to over 900, 000 residents as of the 2010 census and many of these residents own a house with a swimming pool. As the most populous county in the state, Fairfield County represents a little over 25% of Connecticut’s overall population and is one of its fastest-growing counties. From January 2011 to December 2018, there were a total of 39 fatal unintentional drowning deaths in children 17 and younger. Of those 39 deaths, 20 of them occurred in a pool, which is more than half. 28 of these deaths were male and 11 were female.
Some examples of layers of protection we recommend to Fairfield County homeowners include:
- A child pool safety fence
- Self-closing, self-latching pool gates
- Pool safety covers
- Pool and door alarms

- Swimming lessons
- Constant adult supervision
Child proof pool fences have been used for decades as a preventative measure by parents, grandparents and caretakers. As a homeowner in Fairfield County, ensuring your children and grandchildren are safe from harm is vital.
In Fairfield County, all residential swimming pools must be enclosed with fencing in a way that makes the water inaccessible and prevents small children from accessing the pool. The enclosure must be at least four feet high above the underlying ground with a pool gate that must be self-closing and self-latching.

The fence is easily rolled up for compact storage and long-term removal. Additionally, the mesh we use is marine grade and quadruple stitched border; it’s nearly indestructible, making our fence the most ideal option for any homeowner. The mesh we use is also nearly transparent which means you can easily see the water while your children are playing in the pool. Remember, even a black mesh fence can be virtually see-through!
