Young children are at high risk of drowning. They are naturally curious and attracted to water. However, they are too young to understand the concept of danger, making supervision vital. Children drown quickly and silently, usually without calling out for help.
Supervising a group of children around water, such as at a pool party, is particularly difficult. It may be hard to see all areas of the pool, with pool toys and splashing water impeding vision. Different children have different swimming abilities and you may not be aware of the skill level of each child you are supervising. It is also easy to get distracted by a child or another party guest, diverting your attention from the children in the pool area.
By having dedicated lifeguards at these events the risk of drowning dramatically decrease. Providing a safe and fun event for all. It produces a stress-free environment for hosts and party organises as they are able to focus on their guests and other tasks while the professionals are at work.
