On this week’s episode of Keeping Kids Safe, Karen and Megan speak with one of the inspiring forces behind The ZAC Foundation, Nancy Baker. Nancy is the mother of Virginia Graeme Baker, for whom the national Spa and Safety Act is named.
Joining us from the National Water Safety Conference in Fort Worth, Texas, Nancy shares her powerful, personal story and explains how she has used a family tragedy as motivation to prevent drain entrapment from impacting others. Since the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act of 2007 was signed into law, there have been zero deaths involving children in U.S. public pools and spas due to drain entrapment. This is an incredibly important podcast that shows that even after the most unthinkable tragedy, positive change can occur.
