Did you know May is water safety month? With the weather getting warmer it’s almost time to go have fun in the water but before that can happen, we have to make sure we know how to stay safe.
The City of Eugene has joined with Willamalane, River Road Park and Recreation and the Eugene Family YMCA with the Water Watchers’ campaign to help everyone stay safe. The Water Watchers’ campaign asks people who pledge to watch their families in pools and other bodies of water and respond in emergencies. Drownings are more common during the warmer weather, and by pledging to be a Water Watcher we are hoping to help keep people safe.
We are asking people who go out this summer to lakes and rivers to make sure their loved ones and children are safe. Here are some tips to stay safe this summer!
We hope these tips help people stay safe while having a fun summer!
