National Drowning Prevention Week

National Drowning Prevention Week is July 21—27, 2019  

 

Drowning doesn’t look like a splashing call for help.  It is deceptively quiet and can happen to anyone – even to the most skilled swimmers. 

Join us at the YMCA for the Lifesaving Society’s National Drowning Prevention Week – a week dedicated to raising awareness of the signs of drowning and what you can do to prevent it. 

Some of our locations will have special programming during this week.  See below for details on programming, locations, dates, times:
