Announcements and Upcoming Events


It's that time of the year again – the sun is out, the water's warm and kids and adults alike are ready to dive into swim season. Tragically though, over 3,800 people, many of them children, drown in water related incidents each year. You CAN do something to help prevent a disaster. Keep in mind some simple rules:

  • Install and use barriers around your home pool or hot tub.
  • Keep toys not in use away from the pool and out of sight.
  • Always stay within arm's reach of young children and avoid distractions.
  • Ensure everyone in the home knows how to swim well by enrolling them in age-appropriate water orientation and learn-to-swim courses.
  • Everyone always swims with a buddy!
  • Establish and enforce rules and safe behaviors, such as "no diving," "stay away from drain covers," "swim with a buddy" and "walk please."
  • Ensure everyone in the home knows how to respond to aquatic emergencies by having appropriate safety equipment and taking water safety, first aid and CPR courses.
  • Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards.
  • Reach or throw aid to distressed swimmers, don't go in!
  • If you go boating, wear a life jacket! You too- not just your children!
Help ensure your summer is a water-safe one!
