Olympian Matt Welsh OAM joined Kidsafe Australia yesterday to launch our sixth annual ‘Safe Barriers Save Lives’ backyard pool safety campaign at Collingwood’s former home, the iconic Victoria Park.
With the nation in the midst of football finals fever, former AFL player and coach Rodney Eade features in the campaign video to remind the public that when it comes to backyard pool safety, ‘the best offence is a good defence’. To watch the video, click here.
As part of the national campaign, Kidsafe is urging pool owners to check the safety of their pool barriers and set their backyard pool defence in the lead up to daylight saving on Sunday 7th October.
