Water Safety

Fun in the sun often involves water activities, like swimming in pools and lakes. It’s important to be safe while having fun!

Children Across America’s water safety program teaches kids and their families how to be safe when swimming or playing in water. Guests from the local fire department join us to talk to families about the essentials of water safety.
