Keep Your Head above Water with These Pool Safety Tips

Nancy Smith - Tuesday, August 02, 2016

We love seeing our tenants enjoy the pool at Hawthorne Gardens! There’s only one thing that makes us even happier – seeing everyone stay safe while they’re in there.

These pool safety tips are always good to have in mind:

  • Supervise Inexperienced Swimmers – Whether it’s a small child or an adult, inexperienced swimmers should never be left unattended in any body of water, including a pool. While adults can probably have a little bit more room, children who don’t know how to swim should never be more than an arm’s length away from an experienced adult.
  • Floatation Devices Should Not Be Relied On – Many children use floaties in the pool, which may be a comfort to them. However, floaties are not reliable enough to replace the supervision of an adult, which is why even if a child has some kind of floatation device (even a Coast Guard-approved life jacket), they should not be left unattended.
  • Make Sure There’s a Phone Nearby – When a pool is in use, a phone should be kept nearby in case of emergencies. An inexperienced swimmer can slip underwater in a matter of seconds, and having a telephone within reach at the pool area can ensure that they get help as quick as possible if necessary.
  • Learn CPR – It never hurts to be prepared to handle an accident in case one should happen. A CPR course can give you the skills you need to save someone’s life in the case of an emergency.
