Heading to the Pool? Safety Tips

Posted 2:23 p.m.

With the ongoing high temperatures, many residents are heading to area public and private swimming pools.  Please keep these safety tips in mind:

  • Never leave children alone or out of eye contact while they are in or near the water.
  • An adult should be within arm’s length whenever an infant or toddler is in the pool.
  • The water should be clear so that the main drain and any feature on the bottom of the pool is clearly visible.
  • Have a phone and emergency equipment (such as life preservers and shepherd’s crook) poolside in case of emergency.
