Pool Safety is Important

A completely unrelated topic to what I normally post, but what the hell.

If you have kids, and they are going to be in a situation where there is a pool involved, make sure it is fully staffed, especially with lifeguards.

Very good friend of mine had the ‘joy’ of having her kid (a decent swimmer for her age, but age 4) pulled from a pool today because apparently the non-lifeguard staff lost sight of her and didn’t notice that she was struggling and in danger.  Luckily, the lifeguards did their job and all is well.

All’s well that ends well, but in all seriousness, this is one of those things that you see in the news and think won’t happen to you.  If your child is going to be in an area where they could potentially drown, take the necessary precautions, and always have lifeguards present.
