May is National Water Safety Month, and Hastings Water Works is proud to participate in the National Recreation and Park Association’s efforts to improve water safety.
One of the best ways you can prevent drowning is to ensure that your children receive swimming lessons as early as possible.
Additional steps you can take to improve water safety
- Remain within arm’s reach of your children when in a pool, lake, or pond.
- Provide constant oversight of any children swimming in your pool.
- Add safety barriers, including full fencing around your pool, gate alarms, and locks.
- Always use lifejackets when boating.
- When swimming in a public pool, choose a location where lifeguards are provided.
Providing safety and peace of mind for our clients and their families is our mission and the foundation for everything we do. If you have questions about safety at your residential or commercial pool, give us a call.
