Parents supervise, Lifeguards save lives.
Safety is very important to us and while there are lifeguards on deck, we ask you to follow these steps to help ensure the safety of yourself and your child in and around our aquatic areas.
The Keep Watch program has four key drowning prevention Actions. These should not be used individually but together to maximise child safety – if one line of defence fails, the other prevention measures will be actively working to prevent your child from drowning.
Ensure you have everything you need before getting into the water, such as towels and dry clothes.
Always be within arms’ reach of your child.
All of Your Attention:
Focus all of your attention on your child, get into the pool, talk and play with them.
All of the Time:
You should never leave your child alone in the water, nor should they be left in the care of an older child or with the assumption that your responsibility diminishes due to the presence of lifeguards.
0-5 YEAR OLDS & NON-SWIMMERS:
Adult to stay within arms’ reach of child in the water.
