Here at Armed Services YMCA Killeen, the safety of our Members and program participants is our primary concern.

When lightning is within ten miles, we suspend all activity in the Aquatics Center and evacuate people to established safe area(s). Our lifeguards clear both pools and lock the entrances. If our lifeguards ask you to exit the Aquatics Center, please do so in as quick and safe a manner as possible.

We resume activities only when safe. The general rule of thumb is that we reopen the Aquatics Center 30 minutes after the last observed lightning or thunder. Lifeguards must be in appropriate position for surveillance before activities resume.

“The Aquatics Center is indoors – why do you close the pool?”

Water is an excellent conductor of electricity. The structures surrounding our pools, whether outdoor or indoor, may also be conductive. Swimming pools and their attendant structures are connected to vast networks of potentially conductive materials, such as underground water pipes, gas lines, and telephone/electric cables. Many victims of lightning are not struck directly but are injured when electric currents transverse the ground or a structure.
