Atlanta, Georgia (PressExposure) July 21, 2009 -- Resist Attack, a leading company committed to the vision of home and public safety, introduces its line of swimming pool alarms that are geared towards the maintenance of safety among children while doing swimming activities. The bottom line is that children can still enjoy swimming but they are now less likely to come close to incidents of drowning.
According to a report by the Centers for Disease Control, there are six people who drown in U.S. pools daily. It is sad to note, that the majority of these facilities are even staffed with professional and certified lifeguards. In a study by the American Institute for Preventive Medicine, the 4th leading cause of death in the United States is drowning, which causes 4,000 deaths every year. Around one-third of these deaths are children who are under the age of 14. In another study by the National Center for Health Statistics, for children under the age of 15, drowning is said to be the second-leading cause of "unintentional, injury-related death". Furthermore, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says that a child can drown in the time it takes for somebody to answer a phone.
"The need for pool alarms is much more crucial than ever," James Shaw, founder of Resist Attack, said. "While we have to encourage our children to take swimming as an excellent form of exercise, we have to be very cautious with these activities especially if they are left unattended swimming in the pool for hours."
One of the company's flagship products, known simply as swimming pool alarm, is pegged at a discounted price of $159.85. If you order the said item today, it can normally be shipped the next day. The poolguard pool alarm is an electronic monitoring system that sounds automatically up to a 100 decibel alarm when children or pets, accidentally or intentionally, fall into your unattended swimming pool. There is a remote receiver inside your house that alerts you once the alarm sound switches on in the pool.
The many enticing features of the safety turtle pool alarm include easy installation. It simply sits on the pool deck in a non intrusive way." Safety is increased to a higher level as the pool alarm cannot be de-activated easily by anyone. Unless you put it in "sleep mode", it is always in the alarm mode. The pool device is also cheap to maintain as you only need a single 9-volt battery which can last approximately for a year.
Mr. Shaw emphasizes that the swimming pool alarm is indeed just an alarm system, not a life-saving device. It does not seek to replace other safety considerations for swimming activities including adult supervision and lifeguards. Moreover, the alarm system is very helpful as a deterrent to accidents when children and intruders get into your facility without permission. The other pool alarm devices that are available and ready to ship anytime include Noah's Flood Alarm for $14.95; Voice Alert System for $149.95; Personal Alarm with lanyard for $8.95; and GE Motion Sensing Alarm Kit for $39.95. These are bargain rates compared to the regular price range in the market.
