Our Pools will CLOSE during Lightning, Thunder and Violent Storms

The procedure to close for safety during lightning, thunder violent storms is recommended by the YMCA of the USA, The National Lightning Safety Institute, The American Red Cross and our local insurance provider.

“The American Red Cross and the National Lightning Safety Institute continue to recommend the proactive action of removing swimmers from indoor pools as a lightning or violent storm approaches, and until after it passes. We understand that people come to indoor pools to have fun and avoid weather related situations; however we must also remain diligent in clearing the indoor pools during thunderstorms. For the safety of indoor pool swimmers, we are retaining our stance and will continue to endorse the clearing of indoor pools during a thunderstorm”. – YMCA of the USA

 “Indoor pool facilities are connected to a much larger surface area through underground water pipes, gas lines, and electric and telephone wiring. If lightning strikes the ground anywhere on this metallic network, it may induce shocks elsewhere. It is recommended to wait at least 30 minutes after the last sound of thunder before resuming aquatic activities.” – National Lightning Institute

The YMCA is dedicated to the health, safety and well-being of our members, and staff. In the event of an Emergency Management Storm Warning (EMS) and/or direct lighting in the vicinity of the Y, we will clear the pool and surrounding deck for a minimum of 30 minutes. The length of closure may adjust as conditions dictate.

In an effort to reduce any inconvenience to our members we will begin using our mobile app and our web site to communicate pool closings that result from inclement weather. Watch our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter)  , or our mobile app for iPhones and Android phones. We will post closings as quickly as possible.

If there are storms in the area, we recommend you check one of these resources before heading to the YMCA for a swim. We will make our best effort to post information related to closings as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your understanding. We strive to provide a safe and enjoyable facility for our members.
