Pool

Community swimming areas and pools can be fun for the whole family over the summer months.  They can also be a place where kids develop self-confidence, lifelong skills and healthy habits.  Safety is critical to keep pool time safe and fun.

-Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards.

-Always swim with a buddy.

-Install and use barriers around your home pool or hot tub.

-Actively supervise children whenever around the water.

-Always stay within arm's reach of young children and avoid distractions.

-Keep toys not in use away from the pool and out of sight.
