Cold Weather Guidelines for Winter Months: The pool blankets will be placed over the entire pool at closing time each day when the ambient air temperature is forecast to drop below 45°F for at least two consecutive nights. The blankets will be removed the next day at the pool’s scheduled opening time, unless the air temperature is still below 45°F.
The pool blankets will not be removed from the pool when the ambient air temperature is at or below 45°F. If forecasts call for freezing conditions, the swimming pool will not open to the general public or aquatic user groups.
If the wind is over 15 mph, aquatic staff will not put the blankets on or remove them until such time as the wind velocity drops below 15 mph. This applies to steady wind velocity as well as wind gusts.
Aquatic staff will make every attempt possible to accommodate our patrons, but safety and protection of equipment must be of primary concern.
The Aquatic Supervisor or his/her designee will make the final decision regarding covering and uncovering the pool.
Lightning Policy: At the first sign of thunder or lightning, the pool will be evacuated! “If you can hear it, CLEAR IT!” It is the lifeguard’s responsibility to become the weather safety lookout.The facility will remain cleared for 30 minutes after the last observed lightning or thunder. Patrons are expected to clear the pool deck and seek shelter inside the restrooms or in a fully enclosed metal vehicle with the windows up.
♦ AVOID waiting under tall trees, umbrellas,or near electric power lines.
♦ AVOID use of showers or other contact with water.
♦ AVOID use of the telephone.
♦ AVOID contact with metal objects.
