Stay Safe By The Pool
Local law requires a barrier around residential pools and Mecklenburg County is teaming up with other organizations to educate pool owners about the rule.

Did you know that Mecklenburg County had a pool ordinance requiring a barrier or fence around residential pools?  

Drowning is one of the leading causes of childhood injury related deaths nationwide. Locally, the Mecklenburg County Health Department, Carolinas Center for Injury Prevention and Charlotte Mecklenburg Safe Kids have joined forces to educate residents on the local ordinance requiring a minimum of safety to be addressed through the use of a pool barrier (fence) in an effort to protect area children from tragedy.
