Fort Worth YMCAs Offer Free “Safe Swim” Demonstrations On Memorial Day

11 YMCA pools in Fort Worth will be hosting free water safety lessons from 12 p.m. through 5 p.m. this Memorial Day.

The water safety demonstrations will cover topics including:

  • Pool Rules - Discussion of rules around pools.
  • Reach, Throw, Don't Go - Understanding how to help someone in the water.
  • Call 911 - When & how to call for help.
  • CPR - What is it? How to know if someone needs it?
  • Backyard Pools - How to stay safe.
  • Pool Drains - Don't swim or play around them. Make sure drains have covers.
  • Life Jackets - Who and when to wear?
  • Boating & Open Water - General boating safety

The outdoor pools at the YMCA will remain open during a light rain if there is no thunder or lighting. However, at the first sign of lightning, the pool must be cleared out for a 30 minute wait period.

The YMCA community swim summer season will begin on June 4.
