Road & Roundabout Firework Safety

Today the Carmel Police Department reminds citizens of Carmel Fireworks Ordinance 6-158. (Go read it now, or skip to the bottom of this article now, and come back here when you’re finished.) This is most likely similar in other Indianapolis area communities as well.

Road & Roundabout Firework Safety

For the record, it’s probably illegal to set off fireworks in the middle of, or on, the ample roundabouts that dot the Carmel landscape. No matter how tempting it may be, DO NOT DO IT!

We know, everyone likes to set off fountains in the middle of the street. But that’s probably not a good idea to start with. And it’s an even worse idea in or near a roundabout since most people don’t know how to drive a roundabout on a good day.

Drivers would probably get distracted and run you over while you’re lighting the firework ablaze. Or they may run over the embers in a vehicle with some sort of gas and/or oil leak, and the results would not be good.

Err on the side of caution. Stay safe, our friends. Set off your fireworks on your own property. Away from the roads and the roundabouts and away from anything that might catch on fire that shouldn’t be on fire. We don’t want to wake up on the 5th of July and hear about you being involved in a fireworks related accident.

Carmel Fireworks Ordinance 6-158

Here are the official Carmel Fireworks Guidelines:

Sounds associated with the legal consumer fireworks during the following days and times:

Between the hours of 5:00pm and two hours after sunset on June 29th, June 30th, July 1st, July 2nd, July 3rd, July 5th, July 6th, July 7th, July 8th and July 9th.

Between the hours of 10:00am and 12:00 midnight on July 4th.

Between the hours of 10:00am on December 31st and 1:00am on January 1st.

As always, if the fireworks are being set off in a dangerous manner, i.e. landing on the roof of someone’s home, and/or causing harm to life or property please call 317-571-2580 for non-emergencies or 911 for life threatening emergencies.

He Started Singing Along… #AdventureswithBabyB

b in poolToday may have been the cutest swimming lesson EVER at Goldfish Swim School. #BabyB sang along with all the songs out loud today! It was adorable.  He still isn’t talking much, but I’m pretty sure that’s just by choice. He jibber-jabbers constantly, but then out of nowhere, he says a complete sentence crystal clear.  He has been “singing along” with other songs for a while now, but today was the first time he sang in the pool. He has been in swimming lessons since November, so I was super proud of this accomplishment today!

#BabyB loves the water. We put him in swimming lessons to keep him safe, but he is also having fun and learning great social skills. Unfortunately, he still hasn’t learned how to not put every single toy in his mouth, so if you have any suggestions for that, let me know!

turtleGoldfish Swim School swimming lessons are just plain fun! #BabyB loves the water, he has a great time with the other kids in his class, he loves watching the fish and the turtle before class, he sometimes joins the other kids at the
coloring table, and he loves the bright colors and fun toys.  He might not know he is learning important survival skills, but I do.

Are you considering taking your kid to Goldfish Swim Schools? Goldfish Swim Schools specializes in teaching safety skills for kids from four months to 12-years-old and we practice these safety skills each week. For more information on lessons, visit the Goldfish Swim School Carmel website.

Kylie is Back… #AdventureswithBabyB

I wish I could have caught #BabyB’s excitement on camera when he saw his teacher Kylie! If you missed the blog about how much he loves his teacher, click here.   Kylie was out two weeks with the flu and was on spring break, so #BabyB missed her.  Fortunately, Goldfish Swim School is always prepared with substitute teachers, so we never had to miss a lesson.

When #BabyB saw Kylie through the observation wall, he was so overjoyed. bummed he can't see kylie He wasn’t too happy though when he realized he couldn’t get in the pool! Don’t worry. He didn’t have to wait long. His class was starting shortly after we arrived.

Swim classes are only a half-an-hour long which is plenty of time to play, learn, and have fun. With a 90 degree heated pool, you don’t waste any of your lesson trying to warm up!  The super fun part of today’s lesson was the new fish toy.  Part of the lesson includes swimming across the pool after a duck or ball (motivation).  Well, today, we had a new toy–a goldfish!  #BabyB did not want to give his up!

kylieEven if you go to the same class every week, every lesson is different. You learn the same important water safety skills, but you use different songs and change the order of the activities. A special activity such as a boat ride, slide ride, water raft, or something like that is included. The kids always provide great entertainment, too!

Interested in putting your kid in swimming lessons? Sign up today! With perpetual lessons, you don’t have to wait for a new session to start. For more information, visit the Goldfish Swim School Carmel website.
