Should Your Community Association Have A Lifeguard?

Should Your Community Association Have A Lifeguard?

HOA | Condo Board Responsibilities and Education, HOA | Condo Amenity and Common Areas

Warm weather means that your HOA community members are looking to cool off and have fun in the sun. If your HOA or condo association has a pool that is open to residents and their guests, you may be concerned about keeping them safe while they splash. This is an important thing to consider because many tragic pool accidents can be prevented with a lifeguard on duty. But hiring a trained lifeguard can be costly. Your HOA or condo association board members will carefully want to weigh the pros and cons of hiring a lifeguard, and consider the other options available. 

**Your state and local laws regarding COVID-19 may have a direct impact on your responsibility to provide additional safety measures at your community pool. Please speak to an attorney or your community management staff and appropriate insurance personnel to ensure that your community isn't violating any new rules or risking additional liability.
