In these remote Indigenous Communities the pools are the only means of escaping the 45c + heat. The pools provide safer water aware communities, reduction in ear, nose, eye, throat and skin diseasese, employment & training pathways, family oriented activities, healthier fitter communities, socially engaged communities. The closures will result in disengagement of the communities, increased risk of drownings from kids hopping fences to get in to pools of a night, kids swimming in unsupervised water holes or creeks, deterioration of plant & equipment, vandalism due to boredom. Please support this petition. I deliver swimming & water safety programs in these communities and know how devastating these closures will be to these communities.
