Premiere Health's Swim Safety Event

by YMCA YMCA Marketing | Apr 26, 2017

Premiere Health is hosting a water safety event at the Paula G. Manship YMCA on May 20. The event will take place from 9 am to 11 am and is free to the public.

At the event, there will be different sections for the kids to learn different swim safety skills, such as how to put on a life jacket and what to do if they fall in a pool. There will also be a section for adults geared towards watching kids in the pool and brushing up on CPR skills if something were to happen. Because drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death among children ages one to four years old, Premiere Health and The YMCA of the Capital Area want to promote safety around water and do our part to decrease that number.

During the event, there will be a drawing for a prize basket of pool related materials, and a basket of YMCA promotional materials. There will also be a raffle for a free month membership at the YMCA of the Capital Area.
