This hot weather makes a backyard swimming pool an inviting spot. But pools can be dangerous to youngsters.

Dr. Shahid Azia, chief of pediatrics at Harbor Hospital Center, says parents should install a fence that isolates the pool from the house and yard. Fencing has been shown to decrease the number of pool injuries by more than 50 percent, he notes.

The American Association of Pediatricians Committee on Injury and Poison Prevention suggests a strategy for avoiding pool accidents.

* Infants and children through age 4 should not be left alone in bathtubs, spas or wading pools. Swimming lessons for children under 4 does not make them "drown-proof" and may lead to a false sense of security. Pool covers are not a substitute for fencing. Parents should learn CPR and keep emergency equipment pool-side.

* Children 5 to 12 years should be taught to swim and learn never to swim alone or without adult supervision. They should wear approved flotation devices and be taught that jumping or diving into water can lead to injuries.

* Youths 13 to 19 years should be counseled about the danger of substance abuse and swimming, diving and boating; and they should learn CPR.
