FONTAINEBLEAU SWIM & TENNIS CLUB
THE LIFEGUARDS ON DUTY HAVE FULL AUTHORITY TO ENFORCE RULES AND TAKE WHATEVER STEPS NECESSARY TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF ALL PERSONS ON THE CLUB PREMISES
Pool Gates: New gate locks have been installed and are up to the DeKalb County Board of Health's code. They may NOT be propped open. If an inspector from the DCBH comes to our pool and the gate is propped open, there will be a $100 fine and the pool must be closed for 24 hours for an inspection.
Lifeguards: If a lifeguard is in uniform they are working. Fontainebleau pays a contract for the guard hours upfront, so if a guard is in uniform they are on duty, they are being paid and WILL be working unless there is severe weather. If Fontainebleau chooses to send a guard home early, they are still paid.
Please do not engage the lifeguards in conversation while they are in the lifeguard chair. They should be focused on the pool and not distracted by members.
If you are having an issue with a guard, please talk to Sweetwater Managers first and they will address the situation. It is not appropriate for members to argue or engage in disrespectful behavior towards the lifeguard.
Anyone in the pool area must obey the lifeguard on duty. The lifeguard has the authority to remove anyone from the pool area whose conduct is deemed unsuitable.
