Drowning Prevention Week

Drowning Prevention Month May 2022.

We have many educational materials that parents or teachers can use to teach water safety to students.

**Check Out Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/DrowningPreventionCoalitionofElPaso and Web Page www.dpcelpaso.org

for activities you can use for your students in the classroom.

The Drowning Prevention Coalition of El Paso each year hosts Drowning Prevention Week as a way to reach out to area school students, teachers and parents about the importance of water safety, learning to swim and the importance of these three simple yet powerful words, “Respect the Water”. The week culminates with May Day Hands Only CPR with the El Paso Fire Department and the Fire Training Academy at Ascarate Park.

The Drowning Prevention Coalition of El Paso will host Drowning Prevention in May with virtual speakers emphasizing water safety and drowning prevention tips to elementary students in area schools as the swim season gets into high gear.

Please go online to www.dpcelpaso.org for info on Drowning Prevention Week/Month to download free handouts, brochures and water safety tips.
