D&D Technologies Becomes Campaign Safety Leader


Huntington Beach, California - D&D Technologies, inventors of the first magnetic pool safety gate latch MagnaLatch®,   joins Pool Safely to advocate that simple steps around the pool saves lives.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) launched Pool Safely: Simple Steps to Save Lives to improve pool and spa safety by reducing childhood drownings, submersion injuries and entrapments. It is a national public education campaign that works with partners around the United Sates to reduce child drownings.

D&D Technologies, a drowning prevention advocate for over 25 years, joins Pool Safely on their mission to save lives.

"We are honored to become Campaign Safety Leaders," said Jackie Barrera, Director of Marketing, North and South America, D&D Technologies. "As founding fathers of the NDPA (National Drowning Prevention Alliance), joining forces with Pool Safely was a natural fit.   We are looking forward to promoting pool safety alongside the Consumer Product Safety Commission and their Pool Safely Campaign.

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control) drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death among children 1-4. The Pool Safely Pledge, one of the outreach tools the campaign uses to share water safety messages, promotes simple steps that save lives. The Pledge is a simple call to action for people to commit to safety steps around the water. Kids will pledge to never go in the water without an adult nearby. Adults will pledge to always watch kids in the water, to learn CPR, and ensure their pools have proper fencing and gates. Take the Pool Safely Pledge by visiting

"Drowning is preventable," said Jim Paterson, Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing, D&D Technologies. "We look forward to promoting The Pledge and simple steps that save lives."
