Title: Kids can drown without a sound (PDF file - 2799 KB) (Links to English resource)
Summary: A literature review identified portable pools as a high risk location for child drowning and near drowning. Discussions with bilingual workers, key informants and focus group participants also identified the need for water safety education among Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities. Kids Health developed a portable pool safety brochure titles "Kids Can Drown Without a Sound" based on focus group feedback conducted by Multicultural Health Communication Service (MHCS) to raise awareness of the safety issues associated with portable swimming pools and the legal requirement for fencing to English and non-English speaking community groups.
