☷ Boulder City Nevada - May is National Water Safety Month 19 April 2022

Boulder City , state Nevada

   Lake Mead is in Boulder City’s back yard , and many homes around our community have pools . Both are great fun for everyone as the mercury rises – and there are also great health benefits to swimming . But many adults don’t realize that drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional , injury - related death for children .  
   May is National Water Safety Month . Boulder City staff remind kids and parents to be Water Smart . “The best advice that I can share is learn to swim well , and have your children start learning at a young age , ” said Cheree Brennan , Aquatic Coordinator at the Boulder City Municipal Pool . “Take steps now to help prevent water emergencies . We hold classes for all ages – from toddlers to teens , parents to grandparents . ”  
   Keep these water safety guidelines in mind whenever you are near or in water: 
   Always swim with a buddy .
   Swim in areas supervised by lifeguards when possible .  
   Read and obey all posted rules .
   Adults should supervise children at all times , even with lifeguards on duty .
   Watch out for “dangerous too’s”: too tired , too cold , too far from safety , too much sun , and too much activity .
   Know how to prevent , recognize , and respond to aquatic emergencies .
   Use only Coast Guard approved life jackets . Water - wings , noodles , or “floaty” swimsuits are not substitutes for an approved life jacket .
   Enter the water feet first ( unless area is marked for diving and has no obstructions ) .
   Don’t mix alcohol with water activities .  
   Lake Mead can be especially dangerous because of unexpected high winds and waves . “Every summer , we hear of tragedy on Lake Mead or in backyard pools . These incidents are tragic , and our hearts go out to the victim’s families , ” said Roger Hall , Parks and Recreation Director for Boulder City . “The Boulder City Pool is a great place to learn critical safety practices and get ready for summer . I’m proud of the efforts of our swim instructors and lifeguards; their work is important to our community . ”
    The pool staff are planning to once again take part in the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson on June 23 , 2022 . Details will be released in the coming weeks .
