You are having a few friends and family over on a hot summer afternoon to cool off and get together. Everyone is having a good time and enjoying themselves. No one is paying attention to the kids playing a bit too near the pool’s deep end. One of them falls in and since alcoholic drinks were being served no adult is in the position to fully and adequately help with the rescue. What do you do? If you are one of the people who adhere to pool safety Arizona and Nevada, you probably have a lifeguard on standby who will notice this an act in an instant.
Lifeguards are not only for use in public pools, there are a variety of scenarios like the one above where their input goes a long way in preventing accidents.
Lifeguards are trained to make instant decision when a situation presents itself that may lead to preventing a person in distress in the water from drowning and how best to go about a rescue procedure. They do not go on panic mode like family and friends are more likely to do in the event of a potential drowning.
Equipped with first aid skills
It is sadly a fact that most people in Arizona and Nevada aren’t as equipped in first aid skills as they should be. Having a life guard on standby ensures that you have an expert in first aid to look out for your people and prevent accidents while having the CPR skills needed to provide critical care.
Better at regulation enforcement
Children are more likely to follow pool regulations from a third party that they know mean business than they are from you, the party host who they believe is just there to have fun like they are. Children are more likely to heed to the stern warning of a lifeguard to keep off the deep end and will be warier of his/her watchful eye than they are of yours. This will go a long way in making sure they don’t drown.
They serve an educative role
It goes without saying that lifeguards are extraordinary swimmers. You can utilize them to help teach your friends and family how to swim, the proper swimmer hygiene they need to know and the proper pool safety drills to follow. There are a lot of things regarding your pool and its use that you may not know that a lifeguard can be able to teach you and your loved ones.
Lifeguards have proven to be a great asset in both residential and public pools. The value they can add to your experience as a pool owner is worth having one on hand. They also ensure that your pool experience goes well without worrying that an accident might happen and you will be unable to respond. Having a guard at hand means pool safety Arizona and Nevada is a number one priority.
