PRESS RELEASE - SWIMMING POOL BARRIERS

Given the recent changes in local weather conditions, the City of Roanoke Rapids announces today details on Roanoke Rapids Land Use Ordinance and North Carolina Building Code compliance for swimming pool barriers.

"All swimming pools shall be completely surrounded by a fence or other barrier having a minimum height of four feet.  When the sides of an above ground pool are used as the barrier, the ladder or steps shall be capable of being secured, locked or removed to prevent access; or the ladder or steps shall be surrounded by a barrier which meets these requirements."

A safety barrier is essential to reduce the number of drowning and serious immersion injuries of young children in swimming pools.  Property and pool owners are responsible for ensuring safety barriers are maintained and that damaged fencing or barriers are fixed immediately.

The Planning & Development Department requests that all citizens take the steps necessary to provide a safe environment for swimmers of all ages.

For more information, contact Planning & Development Director Kelly Lasky or Code Enforcement Supervisor Brian Duhadaway at (252) 533-2844.
