We Love The Life Saving Society, and you should too November 01/2018
While pools can be a tremendous amount of fun for the whole family, they can also be dangerous and need to be taken seriously. Water and swimming pool safety is of the utmost importance when playing or swimming in a pool. We want you to be informed and safe this summer so you can focus on the fun and relaxation.
Safety Tips from Safety Experts
One of the best resources at your disposal is the Life Saving Society. They are a wonderful Canadian charitable organization, dedicated to your safety and education on all things swimming. They’re always working to prevent drowning and water-related injury through their training programs.
On their website you can find Water Smart® tips for parents, up to date information on CPR techniques, tips on pool maintenance and even advice for safe boating practices. They also offer instructional swimming courses, all the way from learn-to-swim to advanced lifesaving and lifeguarding classes. If you haven’t already, you should definitely check them out!
Everything Your Need For a Safe Swimming Pool
We have a huge variety of products that can make your pool experience the safest possible. From basic swimming pool safety products like Water Wings, Safety Ropes and Buoys, and Safety Covers to pool fencing and monitors, we have everything you need. Visit our store or call us if you have any safety concerns about your pool. We don’t want to hear about anyone getting hurt.
Don’t forget drinking water and sunscreen. It’s important to stay hydrated, especially in the summer heat. Always use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and re-apply after swimming, even if you have a “waterproof” type of sunscreen.
With some education, practice, and the right tools, pool safety will become second nature. No more worrying, just fun in the sun with your friends and family.
