Drowning is preventable. The Town of Davie is committed to Water Safety as it is a key component in preventing unintentional drownings for our residents and guests. One important element is ensuring everyone in the home is aware of residential pool safety protocols and barriers that can be installed to protect your loved ones. To comply with the necessary Water Safety standards, it is crucial to be familiar with the following regulations:
