Pool Party Safety Preparation

  1. Designate Lifeguards and Water Watchers
    1. Lifeguards are necessary for oversight of pool party activities during an event. It allows you, as the host to focus on other details of the party.
    2. Water Watchers are responsible adults who agree to watch the swimmers in the water without distraction.  This is a second layer of protection, especially important if you have a slide, diving board, inflatable rafts or tube in your pool.  Also, the water watcher will be responsible for ensuring non-swimmers keep on their life vests. The lifeguard can not take away his/her attention from the pool to put a life vest back on a child.  These designated adults would take 15 minute shifts to be another pair of eyes in an effort to keep the water safe.
  2. Provide life jackets
    1. Don’t rely on your guests to ensure their little ones who can’t swim are not jumping in the pool.  We recommend you having a few Coast Guard Approved life vests on hand.
    2. All children under 4 years old should be required to wear a lifevest. In our experience, there are quite a number of school age children who have little to no swim experience, they should also be wearing a life vest.
    3. Advising parents ahead of time to bring their child’s life vest would be wise, as well as, encouraging parents to swim with their child.
  3. Keep Safety Equipment On-hand
    1. Safety equipment should be available poolside at all times. For pool and hot tub safety, check out Red Cross.
  4. Make Sure Everyone Knows the Rules
    1. Sunshine lifeguards have general pool rules they adhere to.  If there are other rules you would like to include they will enforce those as well.
      • No Running
      • No Rough housing
      • No Glass
      • No Unattended Children in the Pool
      • No Inflatable Personal Floatation Devices

Putting these elements in place ahead of time will allow for a fun time while still being serious about safety!
