Annual Safety Checks

Verifications of pool gates and fences

Each spring, Hampstead's Public Security department performs verifications of all pool gates and fences to ensure that they properly close, latch and are equipped with a proper lock. This preventive check helps make sure that your gate and fence is in good repair. In those cases when gates or fences are deemed in poor condition, Public Security provides a written warning to the pool owner with a requirement that changes be made within 48 hours. Pool owners who have not made the required repairs within that time frame are liable to fines beginning at $500.
