Pond lovers, please be aware of a few safety rules when you go to a pond

1. Children should always go with an adult, not by themselves.
2. Don’t let children pond dip unsupervised
3. Talk to children to make them aware of possible dangers
4. Remain vigilant. A large proportion of drownings are the result of accidental immersion in ponds due to slips and falls from the bank.
