Water Safety Month 2024

Water Safety Month - May 2024

May is recognized as Water Safety Month, and it is dedicated to promoting awareness about safe practices in and around water. The initiative aims to prevent drowning and water-related injuries by educating individuals and communities about essential precaution. Throughout various educational programs, outreach efforts, and events, Water Safety Month seeks to equip people with the knowledge and skills needed to enjoy aquatic activities safely. It serves as a timely reminder to prioritize water safety, especially as warmer weather encourages more people to engage in swimming, boating, and other water-related activities. By raising awareness and fostering a culture of safety, Water Safety Month endeavors to reduce the risk of accidents and ensure that everyone can enjoy the water responsibly.

Important water safety tips:

  • Always swim with a buddy, never swim alone
  • Learn CPR and basic water rescue techniques
  • Supervise children closely around water, even if they know how to swim
  • Avoid distractions like phones when supervising children near water
  • Fence pools and hot tube to prevent unsupervised access
  • Check water conditions and weather forecasts before swimming or boating
  • Never dive headfirst into unfamiliar or shallow waters
  • Avoid alcohol consumption when swimming or operating watercraft
  • Educate yourself and others about water safety and emergency procedures
