NEED A LIFEGUARD FOR A PARTY OR EVENT THIS SUMMER? WELIFEGUARD CAN HELP!
Posted on May 21, 2019 / westportmoms.com
If you’re anything like us, you love the warmer weather and signs of summer, but one of your biggest fears with summer is pools, and your children in – or around – them! If you have a pool, you likely want to ensure your kids are “pool safe” as young as possible, and if you are hosting, you may consider lifeguards to keep everyone safe. If you don’t have a pool, you likely fear to go near pools with younger kids and want your kids learning to swim, and as protected as possible when they go anywhere to do so. Enter welifeguard.com!
