INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICIES

LIGHTNING/THUNDER POLICY

If there is lightning and/or thunder in the area, the pool is cleared immediately. Everyone must be completely out of the water and away from the glass windows. The pool is to remain clear until there is no longer a threat of imminent danger. Typically this closing will last a minimum of 30 minutes dependent on current weather conditions.

TORNADO WATCH

Although the actual conditions in the area may not be presently threatening, there is a strong chance of dangerous winds, maybe a tornado.  When the facility supervisor or a radio announcement has been made, the lifeguard is prepared to clear the pool if necessary.

TORNADO WARNING

If a tornado warning has been issued, the aquatic staff immediately instructs all patrons to clear the pool and seek the designated shelter areas immediately. These designated areas are the men’s and women’s locker rooms. Please listen to all instructions given by guards and recreational staff for your own safety and theirs.
