Safety Should Always Come First
When is comes to pool safety, multiple layers of protection are crucial. That is one of the reasons why on December 19,2007, President George W. Bush signed the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act of 2007. The act is intended to increase the safety of swimming pools and spas by motivating states to pass laws that incorporate layers of protection in order to help prevent drowning, drain entrapment and hair entanglements.
The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act is named for the grandaughter of former Secretary of State James A. Baker, III. In 2002 at the age of seve, Graeme Baker died in a spa after the powerful suction of a drain entrapped her under water. Baker joined Nancy Baker, Graeme’s mother, and Safe Kids USA in a three- Year advocacy campaign for this legislation
