TAMPA, Fla. – School is almost out for the summer, and many families may be spending their days by the pool, which is why officials in Hillsborough County want to help keep everyone safe near the water.
On Friday morning, the county is hosting the first Safe Pools Day Tampa Bay event. It is teaming up with the cities of Tampa, Temple Terrace and Plant City, and the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County for the event.
Starting at 10 a.m., code enforcement officers from each jurisdiction will visit condos, apartment complexes and other common-area pools to make sure they meet safety standards. They’ll look at fencing, signage, drain covers, sanitation and more.
