They cannot and will not perform lifesaving rescues, and they are not meant to be babysitters. Parents are responsible for looking after their own children. Gate attendants have the authority to let residents know when they are breaking the DHEC (South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control) and POA Pool Rules (listed below). Residents are encouraged to notify the gate attendant on duty if they see any infractions to notify POA staff if an immediate response is needed.
There is an emergency phone at the pool for residents to use if a safety emergency occurs. This phone is located on the post at the pool gate, common to the Green Barn. If an emergency arises and you need EMS or Police, please pick up this phone and press the button. You will be automatically connected to emergency personnel. The address for the pool is located above the phone for easy access.
