Drop in and learn how to stay safe around water this summer in an interactive way from our trained staff!

Summer is a time when families will spend more time at outdoor bodies of water such as: rivers, lakes and oceans, which do not usually have a lifeguard present. These activities are fun but they also come with hidden dangers (ex. currents, waves, etc). Be prepared and learn tips on water safety from our staff. 

Life jackets Save Lives

Wearing a life jacket is the most important thing you can do to stay safe in, on and around the water. Learn what to look for in a personal flotation device (PFD) or life jacket, and how to find one that properly fits you and your loved ones.

Swim Sober. Boat Sober.

Alcohol and drugs impair your judgment and slow reaction time when you need to be attentive and responsive. Don't be a statistic, learn how to stay safe around water or when you're out on a boat from our friendly lifeguards.
