While monitoring what goes on locally and around the country, we discovered there were three drownings in Phoenix pools in three days last week, so now is not the time to let our guard down.
We were also recently notified that the lifeguards at Merwin Meadows are done for the season. We also know that people tend to swim illegally in the reservoir and the quarry. So first things first. Stay out of the reservoir and the quarry! With unsupervised swimming areas like the Meadows, vigilance is more prevalent than ever. We know school is back in session and swimming is coming to a close whether at the Meadows, the beach or in your backyard pool, but if the warm weather prevails through the fall water activities will continue as well. Please review these water safety tips to ensure a safe incident-free end to the summer season. We hope our series of tips and advice paid large dividends for you, your family and friends this summer. Safety first and always!
