Water Safety Day

 

Did you know that drowning is a leading cause of accidental death in children? 372,000 people lose their lives to drowning each year and that data doesn’t even include 66 countries or drownings related to floods, other natural disasters, or boating incidents. Water safety is serious. Join us this May 15th for International Water Safety Day to learn how you and your family can stay safe in, on, and around the water. All events will be virtual.
