Swimming pools, spas and bodies of open water are great places for family entertainment. Here are a few pool safety and water safety tips to always practice:
o “Buddy Up” This means never swim alone.
o Know your limits. Every body will need a resting period when swimming. Take time to sit out and hydrate.
o Teach children water and pool safety and swimming skills as early as possible.
o Children under 5 in or around water should have an adult- preferably one that can swim- should be close enough to the child to provide touch supervision.
o Never leave children unattended. Make sure you have clear visibility.
o If a child is missing look in the pool, spa or open water first!
o Drowning is silent. Don’t think there will be yelling and splashing. Be nearby and alert when children are in water.
o Swim in safe areas that are supervised by lifeguards.
Most water-related accidents can be avoided by knowing how to stay safe by following a few simple guidelines. Learning how to swim in necessary when you plan on being in or near water.
That a child, age four and under, is 14 times more likely to die in a “non-guarded swimming pool” than they are to be involved in a motor vehicle death. That’s right… 14 TIMES MORE LIKELY! With that startling and alarming statistical fact, isn’t about time that you have certified lifeguards and/or first responders at your pool facility? Pool lifeguards not only help prevent incidents and accidental deaths they also establish order and structure that is needed at all commercial pool facilities.
