Our Water Safety Awareness Week began at Bushwick High School on Monday !
There were more than 40 children and adults learning about water safety through our Know Before You Go presentation; CPR training by the FDNY and jumping into the water to enjoy their FREE swim lesson!
Swim Strong is taking the lead to raise awareness about water safety education to ensure that every child and every adult in the New Metro area has the tools they need to exercise good judgment and take necessary steps to be safe in and around the water. Every day in the U.S., an average of ten people die due to drowning. We want to lower those statistics and make sure New Yorker are prepared, healthy and safe.
