A bad economy does't have to mean you can't keep your kids safe.

Times are tough for almost everyone today, but that doesn’t have to mean you can’t keep your kids out of danger. The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act established a Grant Program to assist states in implementing new laws and regulations for pool and spa safety.
