Emergency evacuation

The Club and the Pool Safety procedures require that Teachers/Coaches have a record of every swimmer in every session.

These records will be used in the event of an emergency evacuation.

For their own safety swimmers and/or parents/guardians should ensure that the swimmer’s name is recorded.

In the unlikely event of an emergency that requires swimmers to leave the Pool or the Pool Building the emergency alarm OR one long whistle will sound.

  • Stop what you are doing and clear to the side of the Pool nearest to your Teacher/Coach, exit the water and await further instruction.
  • The Pool Staff are in charge and will tell your Teacher/Coach what to do. Do not make unnecessary noise.
  • Stay with your Teacher/Coach and follow their instructions.
  • You may be asked to leave the Pool building. Stay in a group with your Teacher/Coach and leave by the nearest Emergency exit. DO NOT TRY TO COLLECT YOUR CLOTHES.
  • When in a safe location your Teacher/Coach will start a roll call of the class from the attendance book to make sure you are all safely out of the building. Do not leave your Teacher/Coach without their permission.
  • Your Teacher/Coach will tell you what to do when the emergency is over.
  • Parents/guardians should exit via the spectators’ door if safe to do so. Please refrain from interrupting the swimmer evacuation and the final roll call. Children not accounted for at the roll call will necessitate a complete search of the Pool premises.
