On Sunday, March 23, AquaSafe proudly hosted the free Safer 3 Water Safety Challenge to help teach children water safety and drowning prevention..
At the event, over 50 kids worked to complete over half a dozen water safety skills. After signing up for a “staging time,” kids moved through the stations at their own pace with an instructor in the water.
Most adults are unaware that drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States for children under the age of five, and second for kids under the age of 14.
Although the free community event is intended to be an educational experience, it is also designed to be a fun, family event.AquaSafe was even featured on Channel 3 for this event! Check it out here.
