Supervision is the best form of child safety. There should always be an adult present when children are near water. Never let them swim by themselves.
Designate one adult to watch the pool area at all parties/functions, alternating every 15 minutes.
Make sure toys are cleared from the swimming pool area.
Learn Infant and Child Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and learn where the emergency phone is near the pool in the event that 911 must be called. In fact, make sure that anyone who is watching your child is certified in CPR and First Aid. Contact your fire department, hospital, American Heart Association or Red Cross for class offerings.
Lifesaving equipment should always be available in the pool area and probably hanging from the fence. Ropes, poles and life preservers are most common.
Teach kids to swim. Swimming lessons train youngsters on valuable lifesaving skills. They learn how to kick, float, hand strokes and, most importantly, breathing techniques as well as the art of holding their breath while submerged under water. Water exploration enables kids to develop their cognitive and motor skills. Swimming lessons will provide them with all the skills needed to survive in water.

Jake's Place Park
As a young teenager, Jake Mazur loved sports and bass fishing. In 1994, Jake and his father, a former City Council member, were fishing on Lake Fork when a storm unexpectedly arose. Before returning to shore, Jake was struck and killed by lightning. Following this unfortunate accident, Mayor Harold Bowden and the City Council obtained 8.5 acres and named the park "Jake's Place" to honor and remember Jake.
Jake's Place contains two baseball fields, a basketball court, picnic benches and grills, the Duane Olson Pavilion, and playground equipment. During the spring and fall baseball seasons, the baseball fields may be reserved for organized practices by returning a completed Reservation Form and Liability Release Forms. The Duane Olson Pavilion may also be reserved by Oak Point residents.

PRESS RELEASE: County Issues Mandatory Burn Ban
Denton County Commissioners Court yesterday instated a Local Disaster Declaration for Threat of Wildland Fire Due to Dry Conditions in Denton County.
Denton County Judge Mary Horn and the Denton County Department of Emergency Services, in the interest of fire safety and fire prevention, are asking for the cooperation of all Denton County residents with respect to outdoor burning. High winds, low humidity, and dead vegetation have contributed to the risk of large and destructive wildfires. At risk are homes, valuable property, and lives. Denton County has experienced an average of 2 wildfires per day since beginning of August with several burning more than 20 acres. Some fires are the result of careless or negligent outdoor burning, some are the result of discarded burning cigarettes from motor vehicles, and some of the fires are intentionally set.
Denton County is again experiencing dry weather with little chance for relief in the immediate future. The summer vegetation is already dying and starting to become very dry with the lack of rainfall through June and July. The early summer weather conditions did not produced adequate soil moisture and will not support vegetative growth which leaves us with a dangerous amount of wildland fire fuel. The Denton County burning ban will continue until drought conditions are alleviated.
The mandatory Burn Ban will ban all outdoor burning, include restrictions on outdoor hot work (welding and cutting torch operations), and the use of combustible materials. Violation of the court ordered burn-ban is a class C misdemeanor punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.00. County Judge Mary Horn stated, “Prevention of potential wildland fires is essential to the safety of County residents. Wildfires can be devastating and difficult on everyone, especially farmers and ranchers; wildfires can destroy not only lives and property, but livelihood as well. With everyone’s help we can make our communities safer places to live and enjoy life.” Denton County Emergency Services Chief Jody Gonzalez stated, “Citizens should take measures to protect their home by removing unwanted combustible debris and vegetation away from their homes and be sure to keep water hoses ready accessible in the event a small fire starts. Always call 911 early to notify your fire department of any fire to assure a faster response and that complete extinguishment has occurred.
Anyone with questions, concerns or complaints about outdoor burning should contact the Denton County Department of Emergency Services at 940/349-2840 or 911 for immediate emergencies.
