Tragedy at Retention Pond Shows Need for Fence
Pool fences and fences around lakes and retention ponds are important, especially when the water is located near a community, school or playground. Some cities have building codes that require fences in certain areas, and others simply leave the lives of young children and pets up to chance.
A community near Indianapolis does not take the need for fencing around lakes lightly, following the death of a 5-year-old resident this week. Chesney Allen drowned in her neighborhood’s retention pond. There were no fences surrounding the lake. Her family is calling for a fence to be built now. This event is tragic and highlights the importance of building a fence around your pool, lake or pond before it’s too late for your community’s youngest members.
A basic line of fencing is much less costly than the life of a child. Seriously consider the consequences of not building a fence and then build one right away. It’s not worth the risk.
