Best Practices for National Water Safety Month (May 2012)

The following Best Practices for National Water Safety Month are brought to you by The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP).

  • Classroom Lesson: Offer to talk to your child’s class about swimming safety. Not sure what to say? Visit nationalwatersafetymonth.com, click on “Event Ideas” and then “Visiting A Classroom.” You’ll find everything you need. And be sure to order some “I’m A Safe Swimmer” wristbands for each student, available at APSP.org/Store. Don’t have a child in school? Just call a local school and offer your services. They love having guest speakers!
  • Local Sign Board: Identify signage around your community. Would a school, sports facility or other organization partner with you during May on a National Water Safety Month message? Put a National Water Safety Month message on the signs and ask to display one of the 30-second Olympic Gold Medal swimmer messages on the screen. Members in southern California did this successfully. (You can get a free download of the safety messages at http://www.apsp.org/Public/Programs-Events/WaterSafetyMonth/index.cfm.)
  • Library Display: Work with your local library to put National Water Safety Materials in one of their display cases. Display some of the APSP safety brochures and be sure to include a sign with your company name and address letting folks know they can come in and pick up their own copy of the brochures. You can also create a display for your local town hall.
  • Safety Fair: Have a safety fair. It’s easy. You can get step-by-step instructions for implementing a water safety fair at nationalwatersafetymonth.com.
