Swimming is always a fun time for you and your children. That is, until an accident happens. Whether or not your children are skilled swimmers, you should always be prepared for the worst. Your children will thank you for it.
You may be surprised to learn that you can hire a lifeguard for a pool party! Lifeguards can be hired by the hour to watch swimmers of all ages and jump in in case of an emergency. Here are the top 4 benefits of having a lifeguard on duty at your party, no matter the occasion or median age of the guests.
- If you are hosting a party, you have way too much on your plate—sometimes literally! You can get distracted from keeping an eye on your kids and instead keep an eye on your cooking or guests outside the pool. Let a lifeguard take care of the pool so you can take care of other important hosting duties.
- Also, what fun is it to stand beside a swimming pool and keep an eye on swimmers, just waiting and watching for an emergency to happen? Hire a lifeguard to enforce pool rules and monitor the pool. You deserve to have fun, too. And you will have more fun with the peace of mind a lifeguard’s presence offers.
- Lifeguards for hire have some major advantages over other adults, even experienced swimmers: They are typically trained in CPR, they are trained to spot signs of a struggle in the water, and they know exactly how to respond in the event that someone is in danger of drowning. If your child is in danger, you may not know how to react. Lifeguards know exactly what to do.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 10 people drown every single day in America. It is the 5th leading cause of unintentional injury death in the country. Here’s a surprising side of these statistics: They don’t just refer to children. Adults can drown, too. Adults who are not skilled swimmers or who have been drinking are in even more danger of drowning when they enter a pool. When you hire a lifeguard for your pool party, you help protect everyone in attendance, no matter their age.
