Lifeguards

Commonwealth Swim Club loves our lifeguards because of what they do to make CSC a clean, fun, safe place to hang out.  Look for an email in July or August if you want to help with Lifeguard Appreciation Week. 
 
In the meanwhile, here's how you can help them accomplish this important mission. 
  1. Get to know your lifeguards.  Learn their names, introduce yourself and your children to them. The best time to talk to the lifeguard is when they are in the pool house not when they are in the guard chair. 
  2. Lifeguards are trained in first aid and resuscitation.  There is a first aid kid and phone in the guard house. 
  3. Lifeguards warn swimmers that are getting into trouble so they won’t have to rescue them. Always listen to the lifeguards. 
  4. Never get into the pool if the lifeguard is not on duty.
  5. There is no lifeguard on duty in the kiddie pool area - stay with your child if they are in this area.  Kids over six should not be in the kiddie pool. 
  6. For their own safety, teach your children to be respectful towards the lifeguards. 
  7. If you have any concerns or questions about something a lifeguard is doing, talk to the pool manager or a board member.
