HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 16, 2011 5 HOMELIVING spoil your fun Be swim smart Making sure children are familiar with water is also one of the best investments parents can make when it comes to ensuring pool safety. Swimming lessons are available at swim schools nationally. Six months is the most common starting age for baby swim classes. Ensuring your children are confident in the water from an early age is not only an important safety step, it's also great fun for the family. Learn to resuscitate The Swimming Pools Act also requires pool owners to display resuscitation charts around pools in case of an emergency. These can be bought from your local council. It's also a good idea to place lifesaving equipment, such as a pole, ring or rope, in the pool area. It's one thing to have a chart on display and another to be confident to act appropriately during an emergency. SPASA recommends that all pool owners complete a resuscitation course. Most take only three or four hours at most and will provide you with essential skills that should be updated annually. The Royal Life Saving Society is one organisation that offers resuscitation courses. Contact your nearest office on 1300 737 763 to find out when courses are available. Remove pool covers Pool covers are important to keep your pool water clean, retain heat and prevent evaporation, but pool covers should never be considered a substitute for a fence or proper supervision. Some pool covers give the illusion of being solid but could sag if walked upon, potentially trapping a child underneath. Safety checklist Keep chemicals safely stored away from children Keep glass and breakables away from the pool area Check decking for rotting timbers Place No Diving signs near your pool Details: www.spasa.org.au Chairs & Lounges Permanent Exhibition Showroom & Warehouse 10/1 Vuko Place Warriewood NSW 2102 Phone: 02 9913 1133 Castle Hill Home Hub Centre Cnr Hudson & Victoria Ave Castle Hill NSW 2154 Phone: 02 9634 8855 www.niceinteriors.com.au Home Cinema Modular Seating available in different combinations 2153177 16/8 )-' #/-&/24 f ./27!9 Ph:9999 6060 Showroom: Unit 8, 101 Darley St, Mona Vale Open 6 days for your convenience ABSOL Awning Blind & Shutter Solutions www.absol.com.au Awnings Blinds Shutters Shade & Energy Up to 30% off Winter SALE!
