Swimming Pool Safety
According to the Centers for Disease Control, 3,443 people died from unintentional drownings in the United States in 2007. Many of these drowning victims were children 14 and younger. The City of North Richland Hills inspects all public, apartment, motel, hotel, health club and community pools and spas to ensure compliance with health and safety codes. Private residential swimming pools are inspected at the time of construction.
Backyard swimming pools must be surrounded by a 6-foot tall fence with a self closing and latching gate. If you have a backyard pool, view our swimming pool information
for a safety checklist. Additional safety tips are available from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention
The City also recommends that you and your family members learn CPR. CPR classes are offered once each month at the North Richland Hills Fire Administration Building. For more information about CPR classes, please see CPR Training
The NRH Centre offers Learn to Swim programs. To learn more, visit the aquatics web page
or call the NRH Centre at 817-427-6600.
Setting off fireworks is unsafe and illegal in our community. For the safety of yourself and others, please refrain from using fireworks as a part of your holiday celebrations. On New Year’s Eve and July 4th, the NRH Police and Fire Departments will seize fireworks and issue citations to violators. The citation may carry a fine of up to $2,000.
Home and Recreational Injury
Injuries at home and at play are not accidents. They can be prevented. The U.S. Center for Disease Control
focuses on the science behind making people safe – working to prevent leading causes of injuries, including drowning, falls, fires, and poisoning. Home and recreation-related injuries affect people of all ages, from infants to older adults, and account for about a third of all injury-related emergency department visits. CDC works to ensure that all people have safe and healthy homes and places to play. Preventing unintentional injuries is a step toward ensuring that all Americans live to their full potential.
