"Pre-Meet Safety Check"
It's time for your first home swim meet and you have been asked to oversee safety factors for your two day event.  You have at least two marshals for each session, but you have not had a chance to walk through the facility.  What areas do you want to evaluate in the pool and surrounding area, BEFORE the first day of your swim meet?
Here are ten areas to focus on to enhance safety during your swim meet.
