Lakewood Hatzolah has an important message for pool owners: Put your home address in the pool area. The reminder comes after an incident this week where Hatzolah was called for an injury and wasn’t immediately able to determine the caller’s location, being that the caller was a guest at the pool.
“When every second counts, it’s imperative that every pool clearly has an address visible,” says a Hatzolah member. “Telling a dispatcher I’m by a so-and-so’s pool isn’t helpful.”
While on the topic of posting clear addresses, Hatzolah would also like to remind residents to ensure their home address is clearly visible both by day and night. [TLS]
