TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Before hitting the pool this weekend there are a few key pool safety rules to remember. 

It all starts with the ABCs of water safety. They are:

A- Adult supervision, assign an adult to supervise children around any water.

B- Barrier, is there a fence that separates the house from the pool, make sure the pool gate is also closed and locked.

C- Classes - make sure adults are CPR trained, as well as take safety classes for boating and jet skiing.

In Pima County there were 24 water related incidents in 2013; six were deaths, three of which were children under the age of 5 and the other three were adults.

Interested in swim classes there are two options readily available - http://www.demontswim.com/
