Swimming is one of the many joys of summer, and we hope you’re able to make good use of the pool. While we want to make sure all our residents and guests have fun in and around the water, the top priority is safety.
Pool rules promote safety, but safety is largely up to you: it’s important to take precautions and be prepared for emergencies.
* Make sure you, your family and your guests know how to swim properly. If you don’t, there are plenty of swimming classes for people of all ages.
* Always supervise children while they’re 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. If your community has a pool, please take note of the association pool rules, and follow them to help keep everyone safe. For more safety tips, go to www.poolsafely.gov.
