Pool Safety in Your Association
Summer is just around the corner and swimming is one of the many activities people love to enjoy in their Condominium or Homeowners Association. If you live in an Association with a swimming pool you probably enjoy using it, especially if you have children. While your Homeowners Association wants to make sure all of their residents and guests have fun in and around the water, their top priority is safety. It is important that you review your Association’s pool rules and become familiar with them. In order to help keep everyone safe you need to follow the pool rules for your Homeowners Association.
Pool rules promote safety, but safety is largely up to you: it is important to take precautions, follow the rules and be prepared for emergencies.
- Make sure you, your family and your guests know how to swim properly. If you do not, there are plenty of swimming classes for people of all ages.
- Always supervise children while they are around the pool, no matter how well they can swim. It only takes one misstep for someone to get hurt.
- Take note where the reach pole, emergency phone and life preservers are located in the pool area.
- Most importantly, consider learning CPR if you haven’t already. This simple life-saving technique could save a life should an accident occur.
There’s plenty of fun to be had at the pool, and knowing how to stay safe in the water will help make this a great summer. For more safety tips, go to www.poolsafely.gov.
