During storms that have THUNDER and/or LIGHTNING we follow these SAFETY RULES:
Thunder sounds: All pools emptied with no one allowed close to the pools or other water sources for 30 MINUTES. This "clock" resets to zero after each subsequent clap of thunder.
Lightning: All pools emptied with no one allowed close to the pools or other water sources for 60 MINUTES.
This "clock" resets to zero after each subsequent flash of lightning.
We will close the pool and grounds if, in the judgment of a Board Member, the period of sustained extreme weather is going to last beyond one hour. We will update the website as soon as possible with any Extreme Weather Closure and subsequent opening. Lifeguards will ALWAYS make the call as to the level of rain that causes us to close the pool.
These are Safety RULES that are NOT flexible, nor negotiable.
