The summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean your safety awareness should. Follow these tips and stay safe at your next trip to the pool at The Woodlands Apartments:
- Learn CPR: Taking a certified course in CPR can give you the skills to save someone’s life, even if you’re not at the pool.
- Supervise Inexperienced Swimmers: Inexperienced swimmers should never be left unattended in any body of water. Children who cannot swim should never be more than an arm’s length away from an adult who can. Adult inexperienced swimmers should also have an experienced swimmer keep a watchful eye on them.
- Don’t Rely on Floatation Devices: Floaties are fun for kids, and do provide a little bit of reassurance for those who cannot swim. However, no floatation device – even a Coast Guard-approved life jacket – should be completely relied upon. An inexperienced swimmer with a floatation device is still an inexperienced swimmer that should not be left unattended.
- Keep a Phone Close By: It takes only seconds for someone to dip underwater. Having a phone (preferably a cell phone) nearby in case of an emergency is always a great idea, so you get help as quickly as possible.
