Help the Rec Dept Keep Kids Safe at the Underwood Pool

This petition had 88 supporters

 (T)he drowning of even one child is an incomprehensible tragedy and immeasurable loss to his/her parents and family" (American Red Cross, 2013).

The Recreation Committee's current rules for the Underwood Pool prevent parents from using life jackets to support children and weak swimmers. 

The American Red Cross' Campaign "Life Jackets Aren't Just for Boats" and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention support the use of life jackets in swimming pools as a layer of safety to help prevent avoidable drownings. 

Please sign this petition if you support our nation's leading public health agencies in allowing parents to provide Coast Guard-approved life jackets for children and weak swimmers at our Underwood pool!
