Lifeguard discussing pool rules with two swimmers

Water Safety and Hiring a Lifeguard!

Ahhh, Spring has sprung! The longer nights, beautiful weather, the chirping birds and blooming flowers, something about Spring time just makes us happy. Maybe its that summer is so close we can almost taste it! With spring breaks and warmer weather, swim season is officially upon us!

This is a great time to make sure you are aware of important water safety tips to keep your family safe while having fun! Make sure you are always, 100% actively supervising your children when they are swimming. It is so easy to get caught up in conversation that we forget our “swimmer” is not as strong of a swimmer as we think. It only takes a matter of seconds for a child to get into trouble in the water! Keep your eyes on them. If you think for a minute that you are not able to keep them within your sight AND within reach, then have them stay out of the water until the time presents itself that you are near and alert.

Lifeguards are Essential

It can be a safe and fantastic idea to have a designated supervisor for parties and family events. Parents easily become over confident and sometimes confused as to who is watching the kids. Making someone responsible at all times helps to ensure that all children are supervised.

Lifeguards are essential at public water facilities to ensure the safety of each child present. Did you know you can hire our life guards  for your own get togethers or parties? The Swimming Swan lifeguards are all certified and have gone through extensive training necessary to keep their eyes on each person in the water. Hiring a lifeguard for any event where just a few, or multiple, children will be in the water can be helpful, and is always your safest option. If you know parents are socializing as well, its the best solution. Contact us today to learn more about how we can get a lifeguard to your event.
