As part of a community service project, Somil Agarwal of Boy Scout Troop 17 worked with the Millburn Fire Department to create a Home Pool Safety Guide for residents this summer.

Included in the guide are fundamental pool safety rules, layers of protection tips for backyard pools and hot tubs, and a chain of drowning survival guide featuring rescue tactics and key emergency numbers to call in the event of an incident.

Chain of Drowning Survival Checklist

Agarwal will present the work formally at an upcoming Township Committee meeting. Residents may access the full guide below, as well as through the Fire Department page.
