    Some Philly pools close tomorrow: List of 2016 dates
    Philadelphia is in the middle of a heat wave, with a scorching weekend on tap, but some of the city's public pools will close before the hottest weather hits. Philadelphia's 70 free public pools (the most per-capita of any city in the country) begin to shut down for the season on Friday, just as temperatures are set to soar, with triple-digit heat indices forecasted for Saturday and Sunday.
    http://www.philly.com

  • I love children and would love to be a lifeguard in any one of the pools......if I could swim. I'm sure I would be turned down if I contacted the city. However, if you are saying that the city would take anyone to be a lifeguard, then the problem's already solved. Dennis, need I remind you that closing of the pools in such hot weather is no sarcastic matter but a very serious one.

  • Gina, I am in total agreement with you. Furthermore, the city does this every year.
    Why not hire as Gina has stated, it would give the teens a nice summer job and they could work up to Labor Day. Gina's thoughts are excellent and I hope and pray the powers that be take heed.
