Drowning Prevention Week
Drowning Prevention Week May 4-9 (speak at schools May 4-7, 2020. CANCELLED
We have many educational materials that parents or teachers can use to teach water safety to students.
**DEADLINE to register **
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 on May 9th with the El Paso Fire Department at the Fire Training Academy at Ascarate Park.
The Drowning Prevention Coalition of El Paso will host Drowning Prevention Week from **May 4-7 ** with guest speakers available to speak on water safety and drowning prevention tips to elementary students at area schools as the swim season gets into high gear.
It is preferred to gather as many students at the school for the speaking engagements such as in gym, auditorium or multiple classes at one time.
